Pansies for Mum

I was asked to make a flowery Mother's Day card for a friend to give to his Mum.  I started with a stamp I've had ages by Papercraft4You.  I stamped it in Archival Ink, twice, and then watercoloured it with my Whisper's Pens.  I cut a piece of green card and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Flourished Frame folder and added my image to the centre, using the second image to layer the flowers (there is a Decoupage challenge over on Crafty Cardmaker's Spotlight this week if you're interested!).   The bg paper is from some I've had for ages and is by K&Co.  The sentiment was printed on my computer.  To finish off I added peel-off corners and some bling.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Crafty Inspirations - Mother's Day
The Crafty Pad - for Mums
Ooh La La Creations - Mother's Day
Cupcake Crafts - Flowers for Mum
Tip Top Tuesday - Nature Inspired
Scrapbook Sisters - Mother's Day
Paper Play - For Mum
