My Mothers Day card for a couple of challenges

I have finally got around to making my mum a card for mothers day on the 14th. It has taken me a while to think what to do, so I looked at all my photos of cards and picked out the sketch that I liked the most and used papers and card from my stash to recreate something similar.

I would like to enter it for the card Challenge on MSE that JHB has set, and also for the Allsorts Challenge and Magical Crafts Challenge, which is week is to make a card/gift for Mothers Day - I will be making a matching box to go with this, for her present too.

For this card I have used an ivory square card blank, jade green gemstone card, and plain jade card from my stash. The paper is from My Minds Eye. Everything was cut out on the 'bug' using nestabilities - square, circles and scalloped circle.

The glitter ribbon, pearls and peel off are all from my stash, and I have tried to create a flower that matches the colours of the paper.

Really pleased with it, and hope my mum likes it.
