Pastel, For You card

When I have a card to make, sometimes I just don't know where to start.  I super love online challenge blogs to help me with a starting point.  Stampin Sisters in Christ has a challenge to use pastels and I saw this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

And here is my card:  

I stamped the background with a butterfly stamp I got years ago.
I used a Creative Memories corner punch on the big square piece of patterned paper (rec'd as gift and I don't know brand) and rubbed ink on the edges.
The butterfly is a 3D sticker.  The 'for you' sentiment is a stamp from Stampin Up!  They are mounted on a scallop circle punch, also from SU!
The 3 little flowers are small SU! punches with SU! pearls.  

I'm using this card for Mother's Day.  :o)
Thanks for swinging by!
