Mother's Day Cards & Card Design Template

As you know, I am a compulsive card maker. The only time I've bought cards was for wedding thank-yous. Even then, I designed the cards and had them printed. However, let it be noted: I greatly appreciate store bought cards! Anyway, I made Mother's Day cards this weekend.

Supplies: washi tape, paper by MME and Crate Paper and I can't remember who makes the embellishments

I usually lean towards keeping card designs simple and focusing on cool paper. However, I challenged myself this weekend because I made one more extravagant card and a pretty blingin' graduation card for my sister (I'll post that one later).
If you want to go with my usual minimalist theme, I've created a card template for you. I would love to see what you come up with using this template. And how creative you can get with it!
See how I stepped out of my box for this one? It's for my mom and I thought she would appreciate some extra snazz. I even layered flowers and added bling to the middle of them! What? I am the first to admit that the hand-drawn stems are looking a little weak. But life goes on anyway. :)
 Supplies: flowers from the $1 section at Michaels, pearl stickers from the $1 at Michaels, delight stamp from JoAnns, jar stamp from Michaels, paper by Crate Paper
