Mother's Day Hop at Exploring Cricut

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today brings a new challenge at Exploring Cricut . We are also having a special Design Team hop to share our projects to help celebrate Mother's Day, which is this Sunday, May 12th..
The Challenge...Mother's Day
Since my mom passed away unexpectedly about a year and a half ago, I made this card for my mother-in-law. She reminds me of one of those perfect moms that you would find on a TV show from the 50's. I have always teased my husband and said that they were the Leave it to Beaver family growing up. 
Here is my Exploring Cricut project...
 The sketch I used...
This flower is from Florals Embellished. There are many layers to use, but you can pick and choose which ones you want to add.
 I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut out mom....
but on the Floral Embellished cartridge, there are LOTS of phrases for Mother's Day. Aren't they FABULOUS?!?!
