This particular card was used eventually as a Mother's Day card, thus M as the sentiment. It could have been a Birthday or any other occasion, though. Bearing a lot of flowers it's quite universal.

PS Detail:
Chalks. I experimented with chalks on the flowers. OK. I've tried it once and I am not going to do it again. Preferably ever. The biggest problem was to combine chalking the flowers and watering them. I always spray flowers a little for better molding. The wet chalk created a rather unsightly effect of dirtiness rather than anything else. Kind of expected, but still disappointing, I had had hopes it might just alter the color very slightly. No luck there. I still used some victims of my experiment on the card though, after adding some lining.
