Another Card for Virginia's View #4

The Inspirational Picture
When I began to work on this card I did not know what type of card I was making.  At the time I only had the main image and background picked out and was not sure where I was heading with this card.  It was towards the end of finishing my card that I decided to make it a Mother's Day Card for my Mother-In-Law.  I am entering this card in the Hero Arts Current monthly challenge and on Lily Pad card Virginia's View challenge.
I used sketch #2 for the HA challenge and instead of using the circle I decided to use a tall panel.  The stamps are Hero Arts:  Lattice 331065, Tall Flower K5431, and Happy Mothers Day C2962 (2004).  The 4 panels were distressed with Barn door distress ink and then embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing Folder:  Floral Screen 37160.
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments.

Hello Sue
I can so relate to your statement
'I was not sure where I was heading with this card' this is my state of mind every time I sit at the craft table!
I have come to realise that it is best not to stress about it and let the papers talk to you, and you know it is amazing what enentuates, and you have designed a beautiful card by just doing this, I like how you have made a tall panel, it sits so well with the flower image.
