Happy Mother's Day Easel card with Drawers

With Mother's Day fast approaching, I decided to get to work on my Mother's Day cards.  The best part of making Mother's Day cards are that you can use floral paper and add lots of flowers to it :)

I started my card by making the set of drawers and Easel card base.  I used my Crafter's Companion  boxer board and Advanced Techniques DVD which has the step by step directions.  You can get both
For the background of my card, I pulled out a GCD 8x8 paper pad I have had in my stash, Melody Ross Homespun Chic.  I punched a border on both sides of a small piece of paper and wound a pretty yellowish/green and blue ribbon from my stash.  I cut out the large scalloped oval with my Grand Caliper and stamped Humphrey Me to You stamp Elephant and Happy Mother's Day sentiment.  I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color all of the image with the exception of her dress which I fussy cut out which paper from my stash.  Finally I added some Prima and Petaloo flowers.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
