Another Mother's Day card using velum

(an inside peek)
A while back I embossed a sheet of vellum, using this pretty rose stamp from Sparkle n Sprinkle, and only used half the sheet.  The other half is on this card.  I also added some embossing to the inside.  I die cut 2 different size scalloped ovals, one inside the other, making a frame for the outside of the card and an oval for the sentiment inside.  I versamarked the entire frame and the edges of the oval and embossed both to match the flowers.   The sentiments are stamps from CTMH and SNS.  For embellishments I used some flowered CTMH ribbon with a touch of ink on the edges, a hat pin, 3 other different ribbons, and some pearls.  If you'd like to see the other half of the vellum sheet, it's right here.

I am entering this card in these challenges:
