Mother's Day Card

Finally I made a Mother's day card using the sketch from Sketch Saturday and I've had to make a large card for the Penny Black Cling stamp. Usually I would avoid such a large stamp but my Mum used to grow geraniums and we always had rabbits when I was little so I brought this stamp with the idea of using it for Mother's Day.
The papers are in my stash with no names although I want to say Making Memories,  the Cherish punch worked a treat and so did the swirls with the daisies using Woodware Daisy punches.
There was quite a bit of cutting out but it was worth I think.
 Here's a close up of layers. I can also enter it into the Papertake Weekly challenge who are looking for A Mums card.
