Mother-in-Law's Mother's Day Card

Obviously by the title, this card is for my Husband's mom. She is a very special lady who lives in Idaho. Paul and I have become best friends since we separated, but I haven't spoken to anyone else in his family since Thanksgiving weekend when my boys and I moved out. I hope she enjoys the card and knows that I still care about her. For this card I used the "dryer sheet" technique. Click on the picture to see it enlarged in all of its glitter. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I may have to try it again on another card before I decide. The stamps are from Stampin'Up as are all of the supplies (except the dryer sheet which is brought to you directly from dryer this morning.) Thank you for looking and leaving your comments. Have a great day!
