Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day in the UK, so I'm sharing the card I made for my Mum. I actually made this card just after Christmas, so that I could leave it with my Dad in case I wasn't able to visit again before now...turns out that was very good planning! I used a stamp called 'Deco Roses' by Woodware, that I received a a Christmas gift...stamping it on to watercolour paper, along with a sentiment made using my 'Graffiti Alphabet' stamps by Paper Smooches. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then distressed the edges a little, before matting it on to some matching pink card.

I made a matching tag for the gift...stamping the image off the edge of a kraft tag, along with a Hero Arts sentiment, and adding some colour using watercolour pencils. The twill ribbon around the gift was from Home Sense.

Challenges for this card:
