Love My Marilyn~like Mom card

Love is in the air, Valentine's, Mothers Day, Birthdays and soon Father's Day!  This card is the closest thing I could find to a Diva . . .  Marilyn look alike.  I love these stamps, they are glamorous and Betty Boop-like fancy shmancy if you know what I mean!  Not childish though, just classic style.  The stamp is 'Darling Marci" from LA LA Land Crafts.  The DP is Bo Bunny "Crush Collection, Bazill stock and Martha Stewart Edge punch "Dolly lace".  I just love the dove's in the bird cages and the color coordinated hearts pattern.
