Mother's day card for Hyacinth

I was asked to make a card for a mum with the name Hyacinth (love that), so I found a copyright free picture of hyacinths on the internet and played around a bit digitally till I got the effect I wanted and added the text. I then printed stuck the pieces of ribbon down the side, matted and layered on to a piece of lilac/blue mirror card and than a piece of pearlescent card before matting on to the very light lilac card blank.

This is loosely (I hope not too loosely) based on the sketch for Cardabilities 95 (flipping it horizontally):

Sadly, the mirror card looks darker here than it is irl.

This is also for:
