Mother's Day Card for a Friend

Hello! Hope you all are having a great weekend!
A friend of mine asked if I could make him a special card for his wife's first Mother's Day. She likes pink and brown and Gerber daises. This is his favorite picture of the two of them. She was a sweet little bunny for Halloween. The hardest part about this card was learning Photo Shop! I had really never used it before. The background in the original picture was very dark paneling with a lamp and other distractions. I got rid of all of that, added a gradient, and tuned it into black and white except for Mom's gorgeous blue eyes and baby's painted on pink bunny nose.
I hope they like it!
The designer papers are K&Company and My Mind's Eye.
Please let me know what you think. :)
