Especially for You - FFFC #186 'Anything Goes'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

It's time to kick off another new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  Our theme for the next fortnight is 'Anything Goes'...easy peasy!  I hope you'll join us.  Don't forget to visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to get complete details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.  

Here's what I've created for the challenge.

A closer look at this delightful image from A Day for Daisies.

This image is titled 'Mothers Day Flowers.'

Mother's Day in my part of the world is on the second Sunday in May, so I thought this image would be just perfect for my card.  The digital stamp is available from the A Day for Daisies website HERE.
