Marsha; Another Mother's Day Card!

Hello Everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying this turn in the weather making it quite Springlike, at least I hope it is where ever you are.
Thank you to everyone who left comments on my last card, I look forward to reading them and appreciate each and every one.

Well, I'm feeling a bit better, still not 100 per cent, but I ask myself "will I ever at this age?", so I am going to attempt to go back to work tomorrow, it's my little craft group in the morning and although it's only "bring your own" it would be a pity if the Cottage couldn't open due to short staff.  There will only be myself and Susan the manager on tomorrow, then I'm off for two days, so surely I can get through a day.

Anyway, here is the other Mother's Day card, this one is for Karen' mum. see what you think of it,
Karen had seen this particular image before and had said it was the kind of thing her mum would like, so I thought I would turn it into a Mother's Day card.
You may have seen it before- its from .aciddropsandwhatnots.co.uk
This is the image my hubby thought suited the name of Marsha, coloured her with Promarkers, added a shacking of Glamour Dust to her wrap and feather in hat. Base card I cut out with a large Xcut die, never done that before and didn't know if I would manage it, I'm used to sticking to mainly square cards.  Papermania Art Deco paper and black card, feathers and gold gems also from Art Deco range, sentiment comp generated. I've gone around edges with Weathered Wood Distress ink, not sure why.

So there you are, this is my contribution today, if I don't get back to posting over the weekend, I wish you a great weekend whatever you're doing.
