Art Deco!

It's time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft, where this week we want to see your


creations. But if your like me & don't make any Mother's day cards you can always make a card for
 'a special lady'.....This time I have made a mothers day card as I was asked to by one of our Katie's friends. But it's the first one in a while!

My darling hubby got me this stamp last month, when I was laid up in bed with gastric flu. 
I have seen lots of these large bows around blogland lately & decided to give it a try.....not sure tho...what do you think?
There is glitter on her feather & boa, but as per usual you can't see it very well arghhh!!!
