I pray that you all have a blessed Mother's Day! If you are fortunate enough to still have your mother here with you, show her LOTS of love. If your mother is not with you in the natural, she is with you in spirit. True mothers take their job seriously and they will never leave your side. :-)
I will be sharing a non-traditional Mother's Day card with you today. I have done cards throughout the month that would be considered "traditional," but the rebel in me wanted to shake things up a bit. I visited MayzyArt stamp store (thanks Jo Hamm for the reminder of the 50% off sale) and picked up some real beauties. I am the total opposite of what steampunk is and is probably why I am so attracted to it. You ask, "what is steampunk?" Well, this is how it is defined...is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Okay, that may be the serious definition for it, but I describe it as the perfect match up of hard industrial metal and soft victorian lace. It is truly two opposite working together to create art. I truly love it because it appeals to the Gemini in me...opposing twins. :-)
Okay, enough with the history lesson. Here's my creation using MayzyArt's Steampunk lady and Create with TLC's sentiment.
Thanks for looking and commenting! Happy Mother's Day to my mom, sisters, and everyone else that is fortunate enough to be a mother!

Now get to creating...
Remember: There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
