Mother's Day

 I Made this card for my Mom for Mother's day.  

She truly is a Queen with a heart of gold.

She is 89 Years old and sharp as a tack.  I am the youngest of her 8 children and I am 50 years old!  She came from a  Irish/Scottish immigrant family  of 7 children, married my father, who came from a Polish, immigrant  family of 7, and she can still remember not only everyone's birthday, but also how much they weighed and the weather report on the day they were born.  Unfortunately, she now suffers from COPD, which has slowed her down a bit, but otherwise, she is in great health and never complains

I made this with a  I paper pieced the dress  and used copics and pro markers.  I cut the crown with my cricut, don't remeber what cart because I used the gypsy.   The papers are from K & Company.  I used a piece of very wide tulle ribbon and pleated and adheared it to the backing paper before placing it on the front.  I cut the frame with spellbinders and a Martha stewart punch and used nail art polish for the embellishments.
  I am entering the following challenges:
