Early Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone!

Well, I did finally make time to put together a card that's been bouncing around in my head for a few days now. It didn't turn out exactly as planned as I was hoping to make some paper roses.
The main stamp is Penny Black? I'm one of those newbies who was so excited about using a new stamp that I threw away the original packaging! Now, I'm living to regret it and when I do buy new cling stamps I keep them with the packaging or label them. The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers which I purchased from Crafty Capers  in Nanaimo. This set is sew kewl as it came with the stamping block, sentiments and also the Spellbinders to make assorted tags.
The papers were from Doodlebug Design Inc. (dots), Stampin' Up! (Plain) and Little Yellow Bicycle (Plaid). The plaid one was actually in the baby section!
I coloured the image with Copics and can't remember which colours I used because I kept playing around with different ones. Bling was added around the sentiment and the glittered leaves were cut out with the Cricut (StoryBook cartridge). Ribbon is from Michael's and I made the glue dots myself with the glue gun and tinted them with Ranger Alcohol Inks. I wish that the thread colour had stood out more on the stitching so if you can't tell... it's like a peacock blue that I had left over from some quilts I made.
Thanks for looking! Please don't hesitate to critique me... I'm learning!!

What a great card! I love your creativity and how you even made your own glue dots. I haven't even thought about Mother's Day yet as there are too many other celebrations before then. Great work!
