Mothers Day card (And a couple of challenges!)

I decided to follow along with a great sketch from the Create4fun challenge blog, and thought as it is mothers day next week, I could make my mothers day card to! I have used my new stamps from the CC Designs Spring Kit, which I love! I made the MUM wordss by using Microsoft word, printing the letters in black then using them as a template!

Cardstock: Papermill Shop
Backing Paper: Random Stack - Not sure of the name
Image: CC Designs Spring Kit
Colour Medium: ProMarkers (Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Almond, Blossom, Rose Pink and Sandstone)
Ribbon/Flowers/Shimmer dots: from stash

A close up of the stickles:

I think I have cracked colouring in faces with Promarkers, but I havent succeeded with the hair yet - I guess it comes with practise!

Create4fun - Sketch
Passion for ProMarkers - Back to Nature (Image)
PaperTake Weekly - Buttons, Bows, Brads and Bling (Brads & Bling)
Creative Craft - Thank You (For being a great mum!)
Allsorts - Mothers Day
C.R.A.F.T - Mothers Day/Floral
Crafty Calander - Flower Power
By The Cute and Girly - Spring (Image)
Stampavie and More - Spring (Image)
Totally Papercrafts - Mum
Simon Says Stamp - Mothers Day/Girly
Pile It On - Lucky Me (For having the bestest mum in the world!)

Phew! I didnt realise how many challenges this card fits in to!
