Swirls and Twirls

This is my entry for the Cooking with Cricut challenge "Swirls and Twirls."  I had started this card quite a while ago and just didn't know how to finish it...until this week.  I love the look of the tri-shutter card and its compact size when folded for mailing.
I used several carts on this design: SH for the red/white heart, DC for the black heart, HD for the black swirls, and Heritage for the leaves and the word MOTHER. The white flourish on the front is an SVG cut, the small ones on the inside are just left-over cutouts from a previous project, and of course, I had to use the MS branch punch for decoration depth.
The leaves and hearts are popped for effect, the gems were added for bling, and the sentiment was computer generated.
This will be my Mother's Day card for this year....I think Mom will love it! TFL!
