After School Panic Oh Mother's Day Sunday OOOOOPS by Jake

Hi folks this is a card my nephew made just now after school when I said to him have you a card for Mum on Sunday. I knew his Dad would have one but as his younger brother had made one he couldn't not do his bit. So off Jake (aged 9) went into my craft space and even my pens. A few scream from him when he couldn't find a picture till I gave him this one from Kenny K's which reminded him of his mum to colour. Conversations went a little like this
Oh Aunty Sue you don't have a black pen to colour the hair. 
No Jake use shades of Grey.
What Mum doesn't have Grey Hair.
 Followed by Screams of 
Oh you are not helping me.
 So after I told him how to shade the hair this is his card. He stuck all the layers down coloured the image picked the papers from a selection I allowed him to choose from. Must say I did  cut them but he told me how he wanted them cutting. He picked the embellishments but bow was made by me. All in all he was really proud of it and said could I share with you. As for me I think he can go buy them in the future he is getting too good for my liking and wanting to know all my tips like how you run a glue stick over your double sided tape to help you line it up.
Jake would like to enter this into the following challenges
The poodle parlour - anything goes
I love promarkers - anything goes
My Mum's Craft Shop- Mums the word
