Mother's Day Tulip Vase Card

Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers.

My daughter is the joy of my life. As many of you know I consider her the one with the true art talent in the family. She graduated from Kansas City Art Institute in 2014. She is currently working as a freelance animator for a company in CA, Levitate Media. Since she has not found her dream job to relocate to she lives at home with us which I'm more than happy to have her here. She started working on her Master's degree in Animation Jan this yr and received 2 As in the first 2 classes she completed. She also works part-time on weekends at StarBucks. 

Used a sketch which you can see below to create this Mother's Day card.
