Mother's day

I have used the MCS Fab Glam Fifties cd rom to print the front and back of this mannequin onto a piece of card, then I scored it and cut away most of the outline, leaving just enough for it to be able to stand up. Add three tiny bits of bling, and some ribbon around the waist. The sentiment and flower stamps are from Paula Pascale. I've made this card for OH Mum, she is so appreciative of my cards and takes them over the road to her friend to show her what my latest creation is.
The Less is more challenge this week is masculine - oh dear, time to put away all the girly fashion stamps and dig out something manly!
I'm entering this card into:-
Die cut Dreams-Mother's day or special friend
Papertake weekly - three of something (bling)
Crafty creations-Mother's day
Crafty Catz-Mothers' day
Stampin for the weekend-Mother's day
Craft your days away - Mother's day
