Birthday Card for my Mom

Good morning! I had to wait to share this - because I'm sure she would have spotted it! But I wanted to share the birthday card I made for my mom. She LOVES sheep - so since I hadn't had a chance yet to ink up this cutie from Paper Smooches, I knew that was going to be where I had to start:
I first stamped on Copic blending cardstock and colored it in with Copics. Then I fussy cut out the head and body - each separately to attach to the card base. I attached the body by gluing directly onto my stamped image on my pattern paper, then attached the head with foam adhesive for some cute dimension.
My pattern paper is from Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes 6x6 paper pad - SO in love with it! Those doilies are so pretty! 
I added the sentiment in the upper right corner, and added a touch of bling underneath, and thickers to add the word "mom." Also added a swirl of bling where the cute lamb is kicking up her heals! Who wouldn't love glitter dust when they are kicking up their heals?!?!?!
Finished off with a bit of May Arts glitter ribbon, trimmed on a diagonal, then stacked up underneath - and then inked the edges with some green Tim Holtz distress ink.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
