Flower Pot Card - Happy Mother's Day

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for all the lovely messages you leave me and also a big hello to my new followers.  If you do drop by leave me a message and then I can come and visit you :).

This evening I have a super card I made for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  It is a flower pot card, I had decided ages ago I wanted to make one for her.  Believe it or not the colour scheme of the card is based on the ribbon, I was playing around the other night and tied this triple loop bow and I wanted to use it for something, and I thought the flower pot card would be ideal.  The basis of this card is really easy to do but I spent ages decided on what type of flowers to put on the top. 

I tried mulberry flowers at first but they didn't look right so decided to make my own paper flowers.  The paper for the flowers is from Cuddly Buddly - Fairy Fun Peach, I used four of the designs printed on A4 sheets I then cut out 3 different size flowers (6 petal flower) and layered these and on top placed a medium sized rolled flower with a pearl in the centre.  The flowers were all cut on my CraftRobo.  There is a small Doohickey Dragonfly in the centre embelished with pearls.

These rolled flowers were so easy to do and such fun, I did ink up the edges on a couple but didn't like the effect for this design so I have kept them for another project. 

The ribbon on the top is used to pull out the card, the sentiment was done on the computer and plenty of space for us to write something appropriate to Mum. 

Side view - you can just see the little stand I made (tent fold) to allow the card to stand up. 
All I need to do now is make a little box :). 

Hope you like it - I love it I think it is probably one of my favour cards and I am going to enter it into the following competitions.
