Mothers Day Card

I thought I would try and be organised this year so I have made Andy's mums card early! I covered a square card with some Basic Gray paper, I then asked Andy to choose a stamp that he thought his mum would like and he chose this lovely image, I really like her, so I was pleased. I prepared some plain white card, rounded the corners, distressed it with Antique Linen, I then stamped it using my favourite versafine vintage sepia. I coloured in the flowers and hat ribbons with some watercolour pencils, tied on an organza ribbon and stamped the text. Andy likes it so I hope his mum does to!
