Mother's Day here is 26th March, and I made this for my MIL. The tutorial is HERE.
I have made these many times before but this timeI really struggled and this is my fifth go at cutting the base. Panels were created with a little masking and lots of stamping, coloured with pencils and then sponged. There is just a little Stickles on the bee wings, the blue flowers and the yellow ones. The sentiment really is straight, I think it's the angle I took the photo at to include the whole card that makes it look crooked. Initially I only had the butterfly from the Flowering Fields set, but what true flower garden doesn't have plenty of insects - so I pulled out a clear PB set which has a tiny bee and a couple of butterflies and added more to my Spring garden.

A beautiful screen of lovely field flowers. Wow! Spring abounds on this card and I love it. Your sentiment looks great to me but I certainly know what you mean about the angle from which the picture is taken.

This is so beautiful! I love the garden you have created and the wonderful trellis 'fence' top! Your sponging is delightful and really sets off the whole field of flowers perfectly. Sweet spring insects flittering by; sadly fewer and fewer seen in my garden. Love this card!

This is spectacular Sabrina!!! What a lucky mil you have. I absolutely love that set, but haven't been pleased with how I've used it yet. I really like the way you colored it and added the insects. As for any of the troubles you had with it, I see none from here. :>)
