Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone,
Happy Mother's Day! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I have a Mother's Day card to share with you and it was inspired by the beautiful photo collage for this month's Live and Love Crafts challenge - I absolutely loved this colour scheme as soon as I saw it. I've used:
Papers (hand-stitched) - Maja Design Vintage Spring and Summer Basics (via LLC)
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley Simply Sophisticated set
Frame (layered, painted, and given a coat of Crackle Paint with some Pumice Stone Distress Ink rubbed into the cracks), roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ivory ribbon, lace, cheesecloth, butterflies (Pion Design: My Precious Daughter - with added microbeads and cord), Prima Vax Cord - Live and Love Crafts
Flourishes - Marianne Design die
Pearls - Samuel Taylors
Pin - from my stash

I added some Mica Fragments to Aged Ivory Frantage:

I'm entering the following challenge:
Live and Love Crafts - Photo Inspiration Collage:
