Double D Challenge

The theme is Mother's Day- Happy Birthday and we are to use the tile board below to inspire us.

There is a lot of inspiration here, but I chose the heart shape and the pink color with a little touch of lavender.  I had a stamp set in mind and I went with that. The tile board really gives me a feeling of spring too. So I will get right to it and here is my card.

I used the stamp set and matching die from Simon Says called Roses for You.  The image is colored with Zigs watercolor pens and die cut.  Since my Mother has gone to Heaven 10 years ago, I made this a card that could be used as a birthday or Mother's day card.  
I am entering this card in the Double D challenge here
Hope that you all had a wonderful Mother's day.  Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate your comments.
