Celebrating Mother's Day

It's Tuesday, so it's time to share a project created for Topflight StampsWe're celebrating Mother's Day this week on TFS's blog, so be sure to pop over there for great inspiration by my team mates!

My Mother's Day card features JOFY 15, which is one of my favorite JOFY sets as it features birds, two birdhouses, leaves, blooms, and a fabulous branch. In other words, it's perfect for Mother's Day. I've also used Paper Artsy's terrific Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints. 

Here's the card!
