Happy Mothers Day

Hey, here is the card I made for my mum this year...she loved it :)

I started by printing my sentiment and cutting it out with my only cutting die, edging it with pale yellow ink and then cutting a purple backing with the larger cutting die. I then backed the sentiment and backing with a doily.
I edged the backing card with purple ink and then covered it with cream patterned card.
I attached the main sentiment into the top right hand corner of the card and then added purple wavy and white music ribbon to the bottom of the card. I added a butterfly brad to the top corner above the sentiment.
To enhance the sentiment, I added five flowers which I built up from deep purples to lilacs with a brad in the centers. To these flowers, I added three wired gems. To finish, I added two lilac pearls in opposite corners of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
