Mother's Day card - at last!

Oh I'm terrible - I was actually finishing my mother's day card this morning!  I'm always so last minute with everything, something I really need to try and change.  Anyway here's the card...



The card is a large 8" square.  I bought this Wild Rose Studio stamp with my mum in mind - her fave flowers are daffodils, so I always get her a couple of bunches of daffs along with whatever else I buy her.  I've coloured Milton with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and cut out an extra daffodil so I could 3d it.  The (very busy!) papers are Doodlebug, butterflies cut with a MS punch, Papermania gem stickers coloured with promarkers (on butterflies), Pink Petticoat sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Hope all the mums have had a lovely mother's day - hubby made a cooked breakfast and I had lovely cards and gifts (although I'm not sure if Dex is willing to part with the chocolate orange!).  Hugs to all who find mother's day difficult.
