A Verve-y Mother's Day

This is the card I made for the 3rd April Viva la Verve challenge. The sketch seemed really straight forward, but I really had a time of it. This was my 3rd attempt at getting it right. Whew!
I used Verve's Because of You set, it is chock full of wonderful silhouettes and beautiful verses and sentiments perfect for Mother's Day. I usually give my Mom a hanging basket or plant of some sort for Mother's Day, so I went the floral route regarding the image, papers, and embellishments. And, her favorite color is blue; not this color blue, but it works.

The silhouette was overstamped with the sentiment in black, it really does add a little punch. I also added "Mom" in black as well. The Rolled Flowers are the star of the show, I really enjoy the fact that you can make them virtually any size based on how tightly you wind them. I added the aqua pearls to the center and am kicking myself for not adding black pearls instead.

This is really pretty. I like the Aqua pearls, but I could see how the black would really pop with this color scheme.
