Happy Mother's Day

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day. I'm hoping to get in some crafting time - specifically scrapbooking. But we shall see. In the meantime I thought I'd post this card I made for my Mom.
I was very much wanting to use my Silhouette Portrait. I've been working on using it - for me the learning curve has been big. Everything I want to do apparently isn't just straight up cutting LOL. I did cut some vinyl recently and a lovely little quote is adorning our bedroom walls now. I was very pleased with that accomplishment. (it only took looking at a bazillion videos on You Tube.... ok. I exaggerate a tad. But it took a while.)
So back to the card. Recently the Silhouette store had a lovely 50% off sale on all shapes and I bought a few with my gift card. One was the background you see here in the card. It's actually a card - but I only used the lattice part.  The peony was a freebie - the Silhouette store gives away a shape every week and I gotta say their freebies are pretty fabulous! This flower was so easy to put together - just cut and glue. My kinda flower! The tag is from PTI's Fillable Frames #9 - cut it with the coordinating die and stamped the border on. The sentiment is from PTI's Boutique Borders: Mother. Oh yes - forgot to say the latticey background there is cut from PTI's Spring Moss Bitty Dot patterned paper.
Have a wonderful day!

This is beautiful ! I am starting to think the silhouette is too hard to use. ( for me) love that layered flower. Glad you had a good mothers day. I see you found the HDR in options on the camera. It takes a bit longer to take the picture because it takes 3 pictures at a time and gives you the best two. I love it. But it's not as fast. It's uses a bit more memor..but u can just delete the o e u do t want.
