A Mother's Day Card

 Good Morning, I just thought I would share the card I've made for my Husband to give his Mum for Mother's Day. It's not your usual flowers and things but I hope she will like it.

The image is from Polka Doodles and cut out of the Craft Robo. I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens. I added glitter to the frill on her dress, wings and hat. I coloured some thicker white ribbon I had bought to go through the ribbon sliders using the same pens as her dress. I have used some papers I bought at a  local craft show some time ago so no idea which brand they may be. 
I used some Coredinations card stock with the Krft backing through an embossing folder I got from a magazine. I used my Martha Stewart punch around the page on some white card stock created my own glitter card stock with some double sided tape. I was covered in the stuff for days afterwards, thankfully it's one of my favourite colours. Another layer of paper and done.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
