Mother's Day Card for a Color Challenge

Naturally, I need Mother's Day cards so I used the Splitcoast Color Challenge#476 here. The colors to use are Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz and Primrose Petals. I was inspired by a card I saw online but can't remember where I saw it.
I used the Flower Shop and Delightful Dozen stamp sets.

Here's my recipe:

Papers: WW, Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz
Inks: Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz and Primrose Petals
Accessories: Pansy Punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Rhinestone Basics Jewels, 3/8 inch Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals

Also used some Brights DSP stack and some Fresh Prints DSP Stack.
