Hola everyone! Today's Three Room Studio Challenge is: Mother's Day. I used the Welcome Little One clear stamp set to create my card. As you can see, I altered the image to give my mermaid mom an afro. 

To create my card I stamped the image and sketched out the afro. It was very easy as most of the hair was part of the image. I then colored and fussy cut the image and set it aside. 

Next, I glued 3/4" X 3" strips of Peony, Papaya, Azalea and Arctic cardstock onto white cardstock and die-cut them with a circle nesting die.  

I then die-cut a larger circle into a  3 7/8" X 5 1/8" white card panel, stamped the sentiment below the circle and adhered the striped circle to the back of the panel. 

After heat-setting sand embossing powder on to scrap paper, I cut them into 4" strips, cut the ends and adhered them to the front of the card panel. 

I adhered the newly coiffed mermaid mom to the card panel, added enamel dots and placed the panel onto an A2 card base.
