Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mums out there, I hope you get thoroughly spoiled!
Luckily, I made this card for my wonderful Mum in good time, before my shoulder problem started.  I hope she likes it!  She's a crafter too so she'll appreciate how much work went into it and I know she'll love the colour combo.  I had such fun making this and it fits in nicely with my "more is more" philosophy!
The cascade card was made with Bazzil cardstock and then it was time to go wild with the embellishments!  I made three arches using nesties and added four flowers made from Stampin' Up book print paper cut with my Tattered Florals die to each.
The flowers and butterflies were made with Hero Arts and Sizzix stamp and die cut set, colouring direct to the stamps with Whispers pens.
The lettering was done with an old set of See D stamps which hadn't seen the light of day for some time, I must get them out more often.
Some gems, glass nuggets, bows and a hint of pink Stickles and it's done.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges - 
Just Us Girls - #128 - colour combo
Moving Along With the Times - #140 - special lady
Frosted Designs - things with wings
Let's Ink It Up - #21 - show us your flowers
