Mother's Day

This is my card for Mother's Day. I haven't worked a lot with blue lately and I've missed the color, so I decided to see what the Rubber Stamp Tapestry cherry blossom set would look like in blue. Its funny that despite owning at least ten shades of blue I didn't find the exact look I had in mind. 
  Thanks for looking. 
Stamps: Rubber Stamp Tapestry Cherry Blossom, Papertrey Ink Ambassador Monogram, Stampin' Up! Belle Toile BG
Ink: PTI Avocado, Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue, white craft ink
Paper: Neenah solar white, SU Bashful Blue, SU DP, other random DP and printed vellum
Other: Spellbinders Labels 4, white satin ribbon, paper piercer, liquid pearls, Fiskars corner embossing punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punch

Hey Peggysue! I got a kick out of your comments today! I live in sacramento, California. It was unseasonably warm. It rained today. The weather is all wonky.
