Happy Mother's Day & SSPT #3

Happy Mother's Day!
Hope all the mom's had a great day!
Mom, if you're out there Happy Mother's Day! Love ya!
I want to share a project I made for my mom for her special day. This is also my Sugar Sweet Paper Treats design team project for challenge three. We had to do something 3D and use flowers. Head over and check out what my fellow DT members whipped up. Fabulous stuff. Please play along too. We would LOVE to see what you come up with!
I snuck this in for one more challenge too....Paper Blooms this time was to create a project for a special woman in your life.
Anyway, here is what I made my mom........

I got the canister from her favorite wild bird store. It has little Hummingbirds on it. She loves Hummingbirds. All the flowers were cut from the Walk in My Garden cartridge. I cut each flower several times and layered them. I curled & inked the edges of each piece to make them pop. The centers are buttons from my stash. The watering can is a reproduction of Donna Mundinger's idea that was just featured over at Custom Crops. I redid her file to make it a bit larger. Thanks Donna! The hummingbirds were cut using George and a cut file that Okie (from the Circut messageboard) had on her blog. Thanks Okie!
Here is a closer look.......

Inside the canister there were a few wild bird related treasures!
Hope MOM and the DT approved!
Thanks for stopping by!
