Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Flowers for Mum

This week it's Kate's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which is:

'Flowers for Mum'

Perfect timing, with Mother's day coming up soon here in the UK...and I did originally plan to make a Mother's Day card...but I couln't find my 'Mother's Day' sentiment stamp...must tidy my stamps!
The image I've used is 'Teddy with Bouquet' by Lili of the Valley, which I coloured using watercolour pencils to match the 'springy' colours of the 'Hippity Hoppity' papers by We R Memory Keepers. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used my Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter) to cut out the image, sentiment and scalloped shapes.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
