Mum's mother's day card!

Well not such a sunny morning this morning, but at least my son didn't get any rain yesterday on his trip, and came back very happy with 5 fossils! 

And onto today's card.
So the themes for this card are, say it with flowers, a card for mum and an Easle card.  3 different challenges, one card my mum will love! 
The backing papers are fromDo crafts called 'Hanovarian linen pack', I have layered them onto pink sugar paper, and on the top 2 layers I have punched a lace boarder down one side and added a piece of lace above it.
The stamp is from Lili of the valley and has been coloured with pro markers.  The image has been stamped onto a Nellie snellen multiframe die cut and inked around the edge in pink ink, with blue liquid pearls to decorate.
The flowers are mostly from Wild orchid, with a couple i found in my stash!
The sentiment verse I found on a website, and printed onto my computer, then cut out with a nellie snellen die, it has been inked and pearled in the same way as the first one.
And here is the box for it!  Told you I was going to start making them all together!!
The mothers day stamp was a freebie from a magazine.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Hope you like it.
