A card for Mothers Day

Well, I saw several challenges I wanted to enter, which I haven't done in a loooong time, so I made up my mom's Mothers Day card a little early. Probably one of the few times I am done ahead of schedule!


I tried the 3 dimensional technique that Mariska uses and am fairly happy with it. I had the glue (thanks Elaine!) and just got some syringes recently from Whimsy stamps which makes it much easier to be precise. Unfortunately the tail of my bow is a little wonky but I am pretty sure my mom won't care, it's handmade right?  I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons  make a card for mom
All that Scraps Wednesday challenge  use "sparkle"
Simon Says Stamp  for mom or a special girl
Touch twin marker challenge  color challenge

Glue and Syringes! Are we still talking about card making?
I see fabulous colours, a gorgeous heart doily, terrific colour choice and a perfect bow.

This is soo awesome! Your 3D looks fantastic and you wouldn't even notice the sonny part of the bow, lol. Now that I have started doing 3D, it is really hard to make a simple image. I am in love with this technique and your card! I'm sure your Mom will love it too.
Thank you for joining in at ATS this week, we are happy to have you.
To s of Hugs, Dangina
