A tribute to the QUEEN of my heart

Bleeding Heart flowers have always captured my imagination.  It is like baring one's soul and giving love to the world unconditionally just like mothers do.  I also found this beautiful poem by  Helen Steiner Rice from this website Indobase Holidays to go with this card.

A Mother's Love
A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

This is my card where the front depicts the scene of the April shower. 

Inside the card, the bleeding heart flowers and leaves are still cover with some sparkles from the rain droplets.

Cheery Blossoms and Koi Spring Card

A very oriental theme card with cheery blossoms blooming over the Koi Pond.

To create the rain drops on the surface of water, I embossed a plastic sheet with multiple stacked circle dies without cutting through the plastic.
