A Mother's Love

Third post for me today.  If you are looking for my Shopping Our Stash card, please scroll down one.  For my Twisted Thursday card, please scroll down two posts.  Thanks.

For this month's Great Impressions challenge, the theme was "Feminine" (Birthday, Mother's Day, Friendship, etc).  I chose to go with the Mother's Day theme even though Mother's Day is a bit painful for me. I lost my mother in law last year on Mother's Day, and my own mother passed away from cancer one week after Mother's Day in 1991.  I am grateful for the two kids I do have, but am missing my own mother so much right now as well as my mother in law.  However, I digress.

For my challenge card, I pulled out two long retired Stampin Up sets to work with.  After stamping the lace gloves from the A Mother's Hand twice onto scrap vanilla card stock and cutting out, I stamped a background onto a vanilla panel using Antique Collectibles before sponging and spritzing rose ink around and over it then layering.  After adding some pink baby brads, I then adhered the lace gloves using glue dots before adding my saying, a heart charm, and pearl bling.  The last step was stamping my card, adhering the glove panels, and then sponging rose ink around everything.  I'm really happy with how this turned out.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
