Love you mom

Hello crafters..
Mothers's day is around the corner..So I am here with a super colorful card for mom. I drew the inspiration from the following image

I have come up with this card..

To replicate the square - diamond pattern in the shirt I used stencil (Crafter's workshop mini cubist) over white card stock  and sponged the various colors present in the shirt. To highlight the blue color of eye shadow and hairs I sponged blue memento to top edge.
Further I used lawn fawn speech bubble border die to cut a border in orange card stock and  did some tone on tone stamping on it. Tone on tone gave it a beautiful yet simple look as stockings of the model. 
I adhered this border to the white card stock and after leaving a stripe size blank space I adhered a black stripe to it. I sponged black soot distress ink very lightly to the blank space. The purpose for all this exercise was to include her shoes :)  I applied wink of stella on black stripe to create some more interest.
First glace at the beautiful model makes me think of orange color may be because its presence both in her shirt and stockings. so I provided orange matting. Finally I foam mounted it on white card base..
Considering the upcoming mother's day and cheerful background, stamped the sentiment from technique tuesday mama love on orange circle die cut and gave a black scalloped matting to enhance it. and then foam mounted it to add some dimension.
I am quite happy about how it turned out. I am linking it to Runway Inspired Challenge # 81..
Hope you like it..
