Card for my husbad to give to his Mother

I thought long and hard about what kind of card to make for my husband to give to his Mother on Mother's Day.  I came up with this lovely card.  I used a stamp from CC Designs I purchased from  I love these stamps.  I cut it out with my nesties and then added some flowers, ribbon and bling. 
This is actually a gate fold card.  On the inside flap I stamped the Happy Mother's Day greeting and added a flower from a set I purchased at the Dollar Tree.  Sometimes they have some really good stuff.
I talked with my husband and together we came up with the inside greeting.  I cut it out with my nesties and used the same paper I used on the front.  I added another flower from the set.
Since this is an odd size card for me, I didn't have any envelopes to use with it.  I made my first ever handmade envelope to go with the card.  The envelope is a little too big, but I like it anyway.  I used the last two flowers from the set on the outside of the envelope.
