Vintage Mother's Day Card

I started making this card for a color challenge but I saw another one with vintage.  Blues and vintage... LOVE it! :)

The color imspiration came from: I Came, I Saw, I Created
The vintage inspiration came from: Crafts and Me, Challenge #80: Vintage

I also entered:
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Flowers

I Used:
- Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, Provocraft - hearts2 + book feature at 3.6 in
   and hearts2 + book feature + shift at 3.6 in
- Vintage Papers Imagine Colors & Patterns Cartridge - second image on page 2.  I flooded the light blue cardstock with this iamge.
- Hydrangea stamp, Three Birds Estate Collection
- Perfect Pearls powder, Ranger
- Cream Pearl Pen, Viva Decor
- "Celebrate Today" sentiment - Papertrey Ink
- Fabric flowers from my stash
- All cardstock from Stampin' Up

I added Perfect Pearls powder to the hydrangea.
You can also see how the Imagine Printed on the light blue paper... Cool, huh?

The Viva Pearls were added by hand... after lots of practice!
