For Mother in pastel

(I keep hoping some techie will visit this site and help me with the uploading problems - my image looks fine in my computer file, and when I upload here it gets all blotchy - especially the edges, and white spaces.)
The verse is from Our Daily Bread Happy Birthday set.  I added some die cut letters, Cheery Lynn branches, flowers from a SandyLion sticker set.  I sponged the Swiss Dot piece -IRL it is lighter toward the center - a result I like with this sponging. 

Sketch, with ODB stamp:
Pastels and polka dots:
Purple and white, nature (snowflakes, leaves, flowers), items from Joan's Gardens (EF, vagabond machine, and I bought the leaf die a while ago):
embossing and texture: 
Mother, with Cheery Lynn die:
Pretty Pastels: 
White plus one color:
