Rose Mother's Day Cards

I bought a 6x6 paper pad on clearance from Hobby Lobby after Valentine's Day this year. It is called Love You by the Paper Studio.  I had never bought paper that size before, but many cardmakers were saying how they love that size and they make a goal to use up the entire pad of paper and see how many cards they get out of it.  If you are interested, you can see an article about it here. Well, some of the prints in the stack are definitely love themed, but others are more general.  I didn't want to wait to start using it, so I made some mother's day cards using it.

This first one I based off of a sketch from Operation Write Home, after all, that is what I was making the cards for.  They have so many helpful sketches to utilize and this one was sketch #123.
The beautiful rose that is on these cards is from My Scrap Chick.  I did not use all the layers on it since OWH prefers to keep the overall depth of a card as minimal as possible, but I think it still turned out lovely!
Here is the second style that I made using the scraps from the previous cards.  Same paper and flower, different layout.
And a closeup of the rose...
This is a picture of the first 6 cards I made from this paper pack.  I will keep you updated on more cards that I make with it!

Have a wonderful day!
