Mother: Special word for LOVE Frame

Hi Everyone,
I hope your having a great day so far! I am sooo excited that I got my E2 in the mail today. Yeah!! I am hoping over the weekend that I will get a chance to try it out. Is everyone that purchase one enjoying there's??
I wanted to share a frame and matching card that I made for my Mother for Mother's Day. I found this frame at Michael's and I used some pretty pattern paper from My Mind's Eye~Playful Posies to put this frame to life.

I cut the center pieces to make a mat at 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 and 7 1/4 x 7 1/2. Then I used a fiskars border punch for the flower border on the cream layer. I used my gypsy to cut Mother at 5.25 x 1.25, Special word for~cut at 1.88 x 3.90 with Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and Love~cut at 1.47 x 2.57 from Sweet Hearts cartridge. I cut it all on vinyl so it would be easier for placement.  The flowers cut from Elegant Cakes cartridge at 1" and 1 1/2" and layers, leaves cut from Holiday Cakes cartridge at 2".
CARD: The card base cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, base layer at 4 x 5 1/4. Happy Mother's Day is cut at 3" from Holiday Cakes cartridge. Flower cut at 1 1/2  and leaves cut at 2".

I am entering this in the following challenges:
My Creative Time~Throwback Thursday Challenge
My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #6~ We love you, Mom
More than Favors-Wacky Wednesday Challenge #37~Mother's Day Theme
