SCS Color Challenge 215 Basic Rose Pirouettes

I just made this card for today's color challenge on SCS, and I have to tell you I had all kinds of issues! The colors we were to use for the challenge were Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey and Rose Red-- and I didn't have two of the cardstock colors and one of the ink pads! If you saw my stamp room, you would understand how the idea of not having a color seems impossible!! So I scoured my DP collection until I found some close matches, and I hope this is okay with the ladies in charge! I used several different things to make the flowers on my card--first I used the large daisy from Looks Like Spring and stamped it in Pink Pirouette and Rose Red. Then I used my old spring blossoms punch and punched the smaller inside flowers from a vintage book page that I stamped with Baroque Motifs (to see a really cool use of a vintage book page, check out IngeniousInkling!) The other flowers and the flower pot were cut out with a Sizzix die. All of the flowers and buttons are adhered with dimensionals to make them stand out from the page. I cut the stems (which you can barely see) by hand.
What do you think? A good Mother's Day card??
