Mother's Day & card sketch challenge

I came across this post and loved the idea of the handmade

flowers. So I decided to give it a try. I made a few flowers

using the technique they posted and then made a few from

a different technique. (Which is basically circles shaped into petals.

I used a Classico Alfredo sauce jar, luckily I had two, and put

raffia inside. I found some mahogony colored raffia at the

dollarstore which is also where I got the tiny dowels that I glued

the flowers on. I just used a ink pad to color them green.

I made and added pinwheels just to have a little something else

in there. :)

The cards I made are based on a card sketch posted by Gloria.

I used the same color papers and made similar flowers for on the

cards just so it all matches. :)

These are for my Mom and Aaron's Mom for Mother's Day.
