Happy Mother's Day

I made this card for the Pals Paper Arts PPA40-Monochromatic-Blues Challenge and I have to say it really was a bit of a challenge.  I wanted to added a "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment but just could not seem to find the right space for it.  I used a quilting technique, which I keep seeing amongst all of your fabulous creations, to piece the background paper together.
I would have liked to have used a piece of blue ribbon but unfortunately I did not have any on hand.  This was a shock to the system since I have just about every other color under the sun.  Funny how you never have what you need on hand.  Anyway, a very happy Mother's Day to all of you on Sunday.  Personally, I think everyday should be Mother's Day!
