Mothers Day cards...

Although Mothers Day in Germany (where both my mother and m-i-l live) isn't until May I actually made 3 Mothers day cards. One was done in the Card Club I go to once a month which had a "Shaker card" theme last time and the other two are orders. They are quite simple cards reall, papers are scraps mainly, ribbons and gems from stash and I used a few punches for the lace effect (Martha Steward Doily Lace) and flowers (X-cut punches) and the Nestabilities Labels. Text is computer generated.
Sorry for the bad picture quality, I did them at night and had to fiddle with the camera/light. I am starting my photography course this weekend, so hopefully I'll improve soon!
Thanks for looking!

All three are beautiful! I especially love the hibiscus on the first card and ,of course, the MS border punch you used on the last one. I'm sure they will be much appreciated for the effort you have put into them, Ruth x
