Floral Easter Card

Today I wanted to make an Easter card for my DMIL who always sends my children gifts and cards for Easter (and all occasions).
I used the colors from Cr84fn color challenge:

I used the Mojo Monday sketch:

This is the inspiration photo at the Shabby Tea Room. We are to use handmade flowers on our card this week:

The theme at Heart2Heart is Easter. And the theme at the Pink Elephant is CAS. I tried to make the lines clean and the layout as simple as I could, without sacrificing the shabby elegance of the floral cluster. How'd I do?
Here is the inside: I used a masking technique because this was an Art Philosphy Flower card.
Materials used:
Paper: Colonial White, Garden Green, Taffy, Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue CS
Stamp: He is Risen
Ink: Cocoa, Heavenly Blue, Cotton Candy, Blush, Baby Pink
Other: Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, adhesive pearls (from M's), ribbon from my stash, bitty sparkles
