Mother's Day card....Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 117

There are just some occasions that call for a card that is over the top.  Since I have the GREATEST Mom around, Mother's Day is just such an occasion.  This card was inspired by Jenny Gropp's card found here.
This week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 117 is Anything Goes!  So, I figured this card was as good as any!
Since I got the Grand Nesties 4 I just had to try it out for my card base.  Fancy card calls for a fancy base! Like Jenny, I masked the orchids and airbrushed around them with grey.  Then, it was just a matter of coloring and layering.  My sisters and I gave Mom an orchid for Mother's Day and this card matched perfectly!

Very, very beautiful, Miriam! I bet your mother absolutely loved it - it's so gorgeous and special just for her! I love the flowers and the pearl swirls.
