Happy Mother's Day!

I made some Mother's Day cards using my Silhouette.  I loved this cutting pattern, it had little flowers all over it.  This is what it looked like coming out of the machine, and after I used a toothpick to poke and bend the petals through. 
Then I inked the flowers by brushing a Cat's Eye inkpad over the petals. 
I tried something new that I never tried before.  I took a Spellbinders label die and inked it prior to cutting the paper.  When the die cuts the paper, it inks the parts of the die cut that are not embossed. 
Then I mounted the papers onto the card, attatched the label and added some twine from The Twinery..  I like the way the labels came out, but you have to be careful during the process not to smear the ink.
 There is also a pattern similar to this one on the Silhouette site, one that uses hearts instead of flowers. 
Thanks for looking!!
