Another Bluebonnet Card for My Mom!

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! I've been making bluebonnet cards for my mom to give to some colleagues. This is my third one. I found this really nice digi stamp from Fred She Said--perfect for bluebonnets! I'm beginning to really love digi stamps! I've made another try at making my own flowers, and they are really fun to make! I used some origami paper, which seems to give them a lighter texture. I also put some Wheatfields Glimmer Mist on them (I believe I heard about doing that from rach.) My flowers are getting better! I also used a new embossing folder from Cuttlebug--for borders. This was perfect for the theme and embossed really well.

I'd like to enter this card in all of these great challenges--thanks for the inspiration!
