Happy Mother's Day

This card is for "stamp TV sketch challenge 11" If you have not tried out their challenges you should (you can win free stamps) :) :)No I haven't won anything yet, but I am trying. Sketch challenges are my absolute favorite, I need a place to begin and sketches help get my limited creative juices flowing.. A lot of work went into this card, this was my 4th one before I was happy with the results.
Stamp: Cape Arago, gold embossed, used stickles to decorate, then used my cuttlebug to cut out design which was glued down, used stickles in the corner, those are half circles punched out and stickles in the center of them, the design paper is Basic grey Marrakech.
Have a great Mother's Day
Blessings
