Mother's Day Card and Mini Album

 Ok, first up is a Mother's Day for my mother-in-law.  I just can't get enough of these cute easy to make flower bursts.  I saw this lattice card idea somewhere (sorry don't remember where I saw it to give proper credit) but thought it was amazing and wanted to give it a try.  I used SU! colors of:  very vanilla and baja breeze.  I also used a little of pink pirouette to the inside of the big flower and for the mini one beside of it.  I also used the flower border emboss folder for the outside vanilla layer.
 To give as a small gift with the card, I made this mini according album to hold wallet size photos.  I used a sheet of DSP from blueberry crisp and matched it with very vanilla and not quite navy.  I used bashful blue ribbon to tie it shut.  Again I used the flower bursts on the outside and stamped it with "Happy Mother's Day."
This is what the inside looks like.  I cut and stamped very vanilla pieces to slide in and out of the pockets.  I also stamped on the corners of each.  I soooo hope she likes it. I plan to put some Easter pics of my boys and family inside for her.
