Mother- in -Law Mother's Day

My mother in law is the reason for that saying, "When I get old, I will wear purple." Only she has ALWAYS worn purple. Luckily she is one of those people who can carry the color nicely. She has beautiful silver white hair and it is the perfect color for her. So when it came time to make her card the new PTI color, Royal Velvet, was the perfect choice. She is also quite a seamstress so the Button Boutique was a natural for her as well.
Everything on this card is from Papertrey Ink with the exception of the pin, pearl and satin ribbon rose. I used Copic marker to color the rose to match the gold color of the buttons. You wouldn't think those colors would be pleasing but they are. When I look at this it just screams her name! I hope she likes it, I think she will!
