My Mother's Day Card

TiddlyInks is have a Mother's Day card challenge and I wanted to join in. I've already made the cards for the Mothers in my family so I decided to make a card for myself.
I don't have any two legged children just my four legged Jack Russell (and no I don't consider Bruce my child either).
Eddie and I had a restless night last night (he got me up at 1:36 AM to go out and play). I had started this card earlier in the day and decided to finish it. I got back to bed around 3:30 and slept in a little to make up for it.
The DP is from My Minds Eye Laundry Line, the matting is some shiny card stock I've had for awhile. I printed Bo out on Cryogen white and colored with Copics. I added some glaze to the balloons for some shine. The sentiment is computer generated. I colored the ribbon with Copics and made the bow with my Bow Easy. Air brushing around the edges before taking it out of the Nestabilities finished it of nicely I think. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
I was asked what colors I used on Bo, for the main body I used Egg Shell and Bisque, for the spots I used Chamois.
