This card will shortly be winging it's way to my Mother for a small Valentine remembrance. I will send a Valentine gift basket to my parents filled with chocolates and silly little extras; but my Mother will place this card on her kitchen desk, where it will stay. We all enjoy special cards and this one is easy to create. The tutorial is included in the close-up photo of the bouquet.
