Mothers Day card

Hope everyone is having a great Mothers Day today.
My mom is picking me up today and we are going to take some pink roses to my grand mothers resting place and then heading out to my brothers for some cake and coffee..
I don't really make cards unless I have a need for one and well, today being Mothers Day I spent a few hours this morning making this card for my mom.  Oh, and I bought her some pink roses as well.. :O)

 I won't take credit for the idea behind the card, even though I designed it..
I went google hopping this morning trying to find some card ideas and found a card that was made similar to this one.. I really like the layering and wanted to follow that pattern..

Supplies Used:

Cricut cartridges:
Walk in My Garden: vase, flowers, stems and leaves
Songbird: Title "mother"
George and Basic Shapes: Welded Squares.
Design Studio software for welding
"all cuts are welded to the card base!"

Papers: Bo Bunny "Kitchen Spice line"
Cardstock: Cream and green
gold dots
forest green glimmer mist-title

white gel pen for stitching
zig fine tip black marker for journaling
Tim Holtz distress ink: Old paper

Thank you Ladies so much for looking and I hope you all have the best Mothers Day today.
