Simple Mother's Day Card

For the first time in a long time, I'm not making this card the night before I need it!  This is largely due to a fun Facebook event I came across, NSD 2014.  There are lots of challenges, and I wanted to try to enter as many as I can, getting cards and projects done for several upcoming events.
For this card, I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder as the background.  The flowers are from the Locker Talk cartridge, but rather than cut out the ribbons that go with the image from paper, I recycled some ribbon from a Victoria's Secret shopping bag.  I cut out the yellow centers for the flowers using a regular old hole punch.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon# 94--Bright Summer Colors
Pause Dream Enjoy #9--Flowers
Die Cuttin' Divas #163--Make it Girly
More Than Favors #89--Mother's Day
CAS-ual Fridays #131--use 3 of something on 1/3 of the card
Simon Says--Anything Goes
NSD 2014 Facebook Event Challenge #2--Flowers
