RetroSketches #60

Thanks to a very sweet friend of mine I have a beautiful Mother's Day card to send to my mother-in-law this year. Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea sent me some beautiful stamped flowers from the cutting garden by PTI, they turned out just fabulous and I could not wait to use them to make a card. My card is for this week's RetroSketch challenge and for Simon Says Stamp, Anything Goes.  I am not really much of a purple person but after receiving a stunning birthday card from Joyce using these very flowers, I had to have more and like the doll Joyce is she sent some my way.

Ingredients - All Papertrey Ink unless listed
Solid Card Stock: White and Winter Wisteria
Patterned Paper: Winter Wisteria and Plum Pudding
