Simon Says Challenge

Hello, here is a card I have just finished and it will fit into this week's Simon Says Challenge which is vintage and flowers!  They have on offer a fab $25 shopping spree too, so why not go and join in!  
Earlier today I'd made a card very similar to this for my MIL to send to a dear old friend who is in hospital and very unwell.  They grew up together as neighbours and I thought this image looked like two young friends. Whenever I make a card I usually make enough for at least 2 others (some would say I do the same when cooking too!) so I began to make up a couple more cards and decided they'd be lovely for Mother's Day.
The free image is from Stampington & Co and I think it lends itself to the beautiful sage papers from pink petticoat.  Previously I'd used silver papers but I like the sage more!  I made the flowers from offcuts using x-cut punches.
Thank you for looking.
