Mother's Day Card with SheepskiDesigns

This month over at The Outlawz Progressive Monthly Freebie Challenge, we've been gifted with a lovely Mother's Day floral digi created by Andrea Norris of SheepskiDesigns. Thanks, Andrea! Anyone can join our monthly challenge and receive this month's digi for free simply by joining the Outlawz group and requesting the digi. Hope you can play along with us! With this great digi, you can get your Mother's Day cards taken care of in time for May!
For my card, I created a 7X6 inch white card base using a shimmery white cardstock. I sized and printed the digi using my Silhouette Design Studio software and then colored it with MEXPY markers. I die cut it with a WPlus9 die (from "Sunshine Layers") and added some pearls over the flower centers. I had originally colored them pink, but the card seemed to need a little more dimension. I chose some purple and yellow cardstock by PTI in matching colors and die cut the rectangle with a Marianne die and the doily with a Gina Marie Designs die. The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment was die cut with a Lawn Fawn die. 
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
