Happy Mother's Day, Sister in Law's!

I have two wonderful SIL, that I love and enjoy spending time with.  Each one has a special and unique quality that I love.  Anyways, they both are special to us all, and have been great moms to some wonderful kids.  As always, I try to make them a card too.  So this year, I used free printable images that I found on Pinterest, which has a wealth of choices to choose from.  Picking just a couple can be a bit of a challenge.  I knew the look I was wanting and I knew I wanted to do something with birds and their babies with a bit of a vintage/distressed look.  I think I may have accomplished that look.  I am very happy how they both turned out.  Pretty, yet simple ...

I used:
Printable images found Pinterest
Blue/Burnt Orange Cardstock
Craft Paper Cardstock for the actual cards and the BG "Crimped" scrap papers
Buttons from my button can
Sentiment Stamp from Hobby Lobby
Green Flowers from Hobby Lobby
Adhesive Pearls from Michael's
Burlap scraps
Bakers Twine: Brown and white
Vintage Lace from my stash
Vintage Seam Binding from my stash
Paper Crimper from Hobby Lobby for the brown BG craft paper

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a day filled with many blessings!
