Serene Silhouettes for Friday Mashup

Happy Friday! It's time for another Friday Mashup challenge and this week Amy is our hostess. She'd like us to create a Mother's Day project and to use a recycled/upcycled item on it also.

I have zero contact with my own mother so my card is being sent to the woman I consider my step mom. I've known her since I was 12 and her and my dad started dating a few years after my parents divorced. They were engaged to be married when my father was diagnosed with cancer and he passed before they could do anything. It will be 5 yrs this October since my dad passed but she still treats me and my family like one of her own and she has been there for me while I struggled with losing my dad. So yep, this card is for her!

I didn't mash up the challenge because I don't really keep extra stuff around, not anything that appeals to me in card use anyway. Maybe I'm just not creative enough to see what stuff can be used for, I don't know LOL

The sketch is from a recent Freshly Made Sketches challenge, I like they layout.
