Life Doesn't Have to Be Perfect - and - Flowers for Mother's Day

Hello friends - hope each an every one of you is doing well.
I have a couple of cards to share with you today.
The challenges I'm entering are listed below each card.

The first one was made for a hostess club where we did stenciling  - take a look:

I'm entering this card in two challenges:
Crafty Catz Challenge #230 - Black/White and One Other Color
Fusion - Sketch and/or Photo (Black/White/Yellow or Flowers )

My second card is a card-in-a-box that I made for my Mom for Mother's Day.

Here's a second look at some of the details:

I love these box cards. Such a wow factor for the recipient when they open them :o).
What was fun about this card for me was that I used up a lot of extra bits & pieces
 that were on my craft table (the flowers, the leaves, the grass, the scalloped oval shape).
My Mom loved it! That was the best part about making it. 

I'm entering my box card in the following challenges:
Inky Impressions #159 - Flower Power
Simon Says Wednesday Challenges - Die Crazy (the yellow flowers are from dies).

Thanks so much for stopping by - I'm sure glad that you did. 
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
