To my Mother

My card today is for the upcoming Mother's Day holiday. I love to make girlie cards with pink and flowers. Who doesn't, right?
The background is a stamp by Hero Arts using Ranger distressing ink Spun Sugar. I inked the edges with he same color. Then I stamped the sentiment in grey ink by Stampin Up. The sentiment stamps are by Stamp N Plus (
The flower is die cut from my Cricut all rolled up and adhered to a scallop punch die cut stamped with a Martha Stewart doily. In the center of the flower is a recycled rose bud. It fit perfectly in the center. The ribbon is by Offray and the little flower stamps are also by MS. 
Thanks for looking.
