Remember when

My card today was inspired by this photo.  Its a picture of my mum taken when she was pregnant with me and I adore it (and her).  My mum hates getting her picture taken, always has and always will. I don't know why cos while she doesn't look quite like this any more she still takes a great photo.

I've used a saturated canary image, which I've had a wee while but was a bit intimidated about colouring.  This was my fourth attempt, I don't think the other three efforts will ever see the light of day.  I still need a lot of practice using my copics but can see an improvement albeit slowly.  I used liquid pearls to colour the background to try and create the illusion of light.  The papers are so old I have no idea where they are from and the ribbon which is gorgeous in real life is from the Ribbon girl.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges
