Sparkle N Sprinkle May Challenge

Next Sunday is Mother's Day.  
My mother and I just made our plans for the day.  We will be busting up boxes and cleaning out a section of her basement where she got 4" of water the other day.  
Sounds like fun, huh?
But the garbage gets put out Sunday night, so unless something better comes along that's the plan.
Actually we celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday with a female only family luncheon.  It will be our 20th one.  More on that another time.
I've made this Mother's Day Card to enter in the Sparkle n Sprinkle May Challenge.

I won the digi image in one of their challenges a while ago.  The lace is very old seam binding I found in my stash.  I dumped all my feathers on the floor so I could sort out the tiniest ones for on the hat along with some more lace.  Then I added buttercup liquid pearl centers to the tiny flowers on the hat after they were colored and a pin from my sewing supplies.

To make the glitter frame, I simply cut a 3" square piece of white cardstock.  I put a strip of 1/4" wide score tape all the way around the outside of the square.  Then I rubbed ultra fine white glitter onto the tape.  The sentiment was from a freebie sheet in one of my magazines.  

I am also entering this in the following:
613 Avenue Create Challenge #70 - Anything Goes with optional twist - Ba Da Bling 
Alphabet Challenge - f for feathers
Scrapping 4 Fun Challenge #16 - Happy Mother's Day
