Happy Mother's Day

I took some time out today to join in  a challenge that I thought
was just too pretty to resist!

The challenge is at The Card Concept and this is their
inspiration piece below: 

I love a pretty table and this one just 'spoke to me'!
All the colors, the beauty of the flowers, it ALL inspired me!
You are asked to define the style you used and I am calling mine
Classy and Elegant.

I used some new to me goodies that I haven't used before
to create my Mother's Day card.
My Mom passed away a few years ago as did my MIL
so I think I will mail this card to my daughter for Mother's Day
to brighten up her day!

I stenciled the card with Altenews Sweet Spring Stencil.
It's a two part stencil and I think I will practice more with it
and other colors.  The sentiment is from The Greetery which
is from their Sentiment Suite birthday set. but I thought it would
work well for Mother's Day!
I added a few sequins and a tiny bit of Nuvo to the flower
centers just to give a little sparkle.
