Happy Mother's Day

I decided that I should go ahead and post this card because there may be someone looking for a last bit of inspiration for a Mother's Day card.  Of course, I am assuming you find inspiration here.  :o)  I got the idea for this double Z fold card from Glenda.  You can find the post here.  Her card was so pretty that I really wanted to try it myself.  I like how it turned out.  It will be my mother-in-law's card.

Here are the details:

Size:  4" x 5 1/4"  (5 1/4" x 12" -- scored at 2, 4, 8, and 10")
Card stock:  American Crafts; Bazzill
Embossing:  Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder
Band around card:  1 3/4" wide x 9 1/2" wide
Flower:  The die cut flower is cut using the Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art cartridge at 2 1/4" (page 40 of the handbook);  Mini rose is Recollections
Scalloped oval:  Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 3 1/2" (page 50 of the handbook)
Happy Mother's Day (inside):  Mother's Day Solutions cartridge cut at 2 3/4"
"We Love You" sentiment:  Computer generated and punched using a Paper Shapers punch
