Mother's Day Card with matching gift card holder

Sorry it's been so long since I posted last. I think I may have my mojo back and just in time. I did manage to get some Easter cards done, but didn't have time to post them. I have two birthdays coming up this weekend, then 4 more in May, Mother's Day and a brand new great nephew on the way. Lots of cards to get done. To top it off, I'm having a hip replaced on April 29th, so I don't have any time to spare.

I will try my best to get all the cards posted.

Back to this card. Here are the details: I had an idea for this card when I found the rose paper at JoAnn Fabrics a month ago. I found the layout in my idea folder from a card that was on Amy Sheffer's blog. I used my brand new MS border punch, which I think is very classy. The circles and scallops are all nestabilities and the flowers are from my stash, as well as the brads. The black background was done with a new CB 5x7 embossing folder. The little flowers behind the brads on the right hand side were embossed with that same folder and then punched with an EK Sucess flower punch. The sentiment is a new SU sentiment. The ribbon is by American Crafts.
Doesn't black and red always make a classy looking card? I know that mom will love this.

Now on to those cards I need to have done by this Sunday. Wish me luck!
