Mother's Day ...

It is Mother's Day in the UK at the weekend, so I thought I would share the card I have made for my lovely mum (she does not do internet so there is no danger of her seeing this before the day!).



This is the first outing for this stamp ... it has been resting hidden amongst lots of other unused stamps ... as my mum grows sweet peas I thought it was ideal for her card.  I've water coloured the flowers using Inktense pencils, die cut the panel with stitched rectangle dies then put it back together adhering it to the base with different thickness of foam tape to add some dimension.

I'm entering the following challenges:

NBUS Challenge  #6 - Darnell is a super lady, fabulous card designer and inspiring blog writer! NBUS stands for "Never Been Used Schtuff" - it is Darnell's idea to encourage us all to get out all the stuff that has been waiting to be used!!

Penny Black February Challenge "Anything Goes a stamp and a die"

Stamping Sensations February Challenge  Anything Goes

Enjoy!

  5. A really delightful card and the way you have layered the Sweet Pea image is most effective, many thanks for joining in at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenge.

    Just been catching up on commenting at PB and didn't see your card so not sure if you forgot to link up but would hate for you to miss out - closes at noon today.
