Mothers Day cosmos flowers

Over at Patties Creations, the challenge this month is,
"Mother's Day / Flowers only."
I went with the Mother's Day option... 
although this could work for the "flowers" option, too!

For this card, I used  the lovely image - "watering can cosmos."
I coloured the image with my promarkers ...pastel beige for the watering can
and various pinks n purples for the flowers. 
The leaves are marianne diecuts mixed with a big curly flourish.
The Butterflies are cheery lynn dies.
I also used my new Sue Wilson frame dies...which I love!
I made the sentiment myself in publisher.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Brown sugar - mothers day - 13 May
Crafty catz - female only - 12 May
Creative fingers - atg - 14 May
Jos scrap shack - atg - 16 May
