Happy Mother's Day!

It's safe for me to share my Mum's Mother's Day card now I know she's received it. I picked a sweet Penny Black image called 'Gifts for You!', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I paired it with some pretty papers from the 'Paper Hearts' pad by Crate Paper...distressing the edges a little, and adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and  black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts.

Challenges for this card:
I also made  simple tag to put on her present using the 'Doodled Flowers' stamps by Happy Little Stampers. I stamped a sentiment using my Paper Smooches 'Graffiti' alphabet stamps, then added the flowers around it on a kraft tag, then coloured them using watercolour pencils...without adding water.

Challenges for this tag:
I wrapped the gifts using brown paper, them added some pretty flowery ribbon (from Home Sense), and tied on my tag using some Baker's Twine.
