Blessings are Blooming

I thought this will make a lovely Mother's Day card so I have added a Mothers Day sentiment to the inside of the card.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges - Anything Goes
Deedee's Digis - Digi of the Month
CRAFT Challenge - Inspiration Picture (flowers)

I have used a set of orange coloured papers which I have had in my stash for a long time.  I'm not sure of the brand now but I remember I bought them at Lincraft.  Funny what I remember!  The image is from Deedee's Digis and is the April Digi of the Month.  I coloured the image with copic markers E43, E41, YR04, YG09, YG06.  The matting is some mulberry type paper from a scrap paper pack.  I also added some green glitter tape and some pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Here is the sketch that I followed;
