Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is one week away. I'm more organized this year than last. But, I am still not 100% done :/ I have made my Mother, her card. But I'm not too sure she will like it, and I'm not sure if its 'done'. I was thinking of putting a rhinestone flourish on the upper right corner, or some sort of sparkle detail on the digital image printed on linen. But I'm not sure if it will be too much, or give it the right amount of sparkle. Post your opinion on the rhinestone flourish, or the added sparkle to the flowers in the digital image. I need to mail it out by Wednesday, so I'll take your advice until then.
I used several, (and I mean several) company's to make this card. I will do my best, to get everyone mentioned. Here it goes:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! (Bella Toile, Medallion, All Holidays)
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and Paper Trey Ink (Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Confetti White, Kraft, & Aqua Mist)
Ink: Stampin' Up! & Paper Trey Ink (craft white, craft chocolate chip, Close to Cocoa classic ink, & Aqua Mist)
Spray Ink: Clear Snap (Vanilla, and Log Cabin)
Embossing powders: stampamania (ultra detail clear, and ultra detail glacier white)
Punches: Stampin' Up! & Martha Stewart (Boho Blossom, 2 step bird & coral)
Embossing folder: Stampin' Up! (square lattice)
Die cuts: Sizzix & Spellbinders (Top Note & classic scalloped ovals)
Buttons: My Favorite Things (chocolate kiss)
Ribbon: Stampin' Up! (Flirty)
Half Pearls: Crystal Strickers (3mm Pearl)
Brads: Paper Studio (silver)
Digital Image: The Vintage Workshop (May's free image)
Printable Linen: Milliken (Printed Treasures)
Rub-On: Karen Russell (Narratives - swatch book)

Post your opinion on the rhinestone flourish at the upper right corner, or the added sparkle to the digital flowers. Or, if neither is what will complete this card. I'm open to any suggestion.

Hey Sharon,
Gorgeous card!!! Really, really pretty!
I think a rhinestone flourish in the right corner may be too much, unless it was really tiny. What about a think coating of a clear stickles (I think it's called icicle) on the flowers of the digi image? May be just the right amount of subtle sparkle that you're looking for.
