Easel card for Mother's Day

Here's a Mother's Day card that I have made for this Sunday.  I am entering it into 2 challenges:

Just Cute Bears - Make a Mother's Day card
Die Cut Dreams - No flowers allowed

The second challenge - No flowers allowed - was a difficult one for me as I always seem to have a flower or two on my cards.  I've used a heart punch instead to make a leaf shape and added a little gem onto each one.

Here's what I've used:
All card and paper - DCWV
Flourish - Sizzix Bigz
Teddy - wooden die cut
Jewels - Papermania
All other bits from stash

This photo is a bit closer and clearer.  I have gone round the teddy die with a pro marker to give the edges a bit of definition and I've also added a few highlights with white gel pen.

I've had to make sure the word MOM is clear on the design because mine is definitely a mom and not a mum, mam or ma.

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
