Flowers for Mom

This card is for For Fun Challenges Mother's Day Challenge (or use flowers). There is still plenty of time to enter, you have until Tuesday here on the Wet Coast to enter. The sponsor this week is

The Paper Shelter has some really adorable images. I just loved this one of the little girl. Unfortunately, I managed to get some red ink on her knees just after I had finished colouring her and didn't want to scrap it so I improvised a bit. I think it would have been better if I had the sentiment strip in a colour going across the whole bottom of the card but you live and learn. Mistakes are just design opportunities. The DP was DS's choice - very springy. I don't normally like yellow but it seems to work well here. I just wish the image didn't look like a late Easter egg. My mom will still enjoy it though.
