Mother's Day Card No. 2 ~ 2010

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!!  I just now got my final Mother's Day card done...  They should have been mailed out today...  But nooo,  I've got to be one of the worlds worst procrastinators, and then wind-up doing everything the last minute!!!  Actually I think I do better under stress, but I know it's not good for my health!! 
Any way I looove the way this card turned out.  Kinda shabby chic / vintage / victorian!!  My mom will probably think this is something I've held on to since I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade, because of  how "dirty" it looks!!!  lol  Not really, I know she'll love it, how could she not, it's from her "little" girl!!!!  Oh, by the way, the 2 large flowers are handmade!!!!!  woooo hoooo I'm on a roll...  I really do like making these!!  You will be seeing more of 'em for sure!!!  I hope you like it!!
Here are a few challenges this card qualifies for:
