Bright Mother's Day !

I hope you've got your sunglasses on for this one ! I decided I wanted to do a card that would push me out of my comfort zone, and boy was I uncomfortable! This is my card for the following challenges:

The paper is My Mind's Eye - Day Dream in Bloom, which set the colour scheme. The bird is by My Mind's Eye from the Bloom and Grow stamp set. I stamped it onto a post it note and stuck it over the top of the bird and then stamped over it with another stamp, from the same stamp set, in lettuce Adirondack ink. I then sponged some Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress inks around the edge after cutting it out with a circle Nestability.

The bird is shaded with Pro Markers and the swirl is a Bigz die as are the 3 flowers. I've sponged some more Distress ink around the edge of them. The edge punch is a Martha Stewart and the sentiment is a peel off which I've coloured with a peel off marker.
I started this card last night but didn't finish it as I was watching Silent Witness. Did any one see it, I spent most of the time with face behind my hands ! Can't wait for tonight's episode !
Thanks for looking
