A Mother's Day Card

I made this Mother's Day card using Angellina's Balloons from Mo's Digital Pencil. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Critter Sketch.                                               
The base of my card is white backed in bright green and then backed agian in st valentino pink.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I cut it out in an oval and backed it in bright green and then again in st valentino pink. The block behind the image is white backed in green and the backed in a larger piece of white that is backed in st valentino pink. I created the sentiment on my computer and then backed it in bright green and then again in st valentino pink.  I added pink and green sprinkles to left side of the image and then again to the upper right corner of the image.
