Mothers Day card

The background for the image is the backgound sheet for when I do glimmer misting, so its a combo of a few colours. The stamp I've used is a new one I got yesterday whilst at my class....so appropriate for this time of the year I couldn't resist it. The stamp is from Paper Inspirations and is called Mothers essence. After stamping I sprinkled a little gold embossing powder over some of the words just to add a gold finish....great effect to add some bling. I stamped a lace border down the right side and bottom using a B Line stamp called Lace Duo......you get 2 lace stamps on the top and bottom of the block and they're 8ins long again a great stamp for background I used brushed corduroy....cos its Tim's favourite colour lol....other colours used are the new Victorian velvet and crushed olive. The photo image is from Crafty Individuals.

Challenges are:
Create 4 Fun....sketch.
Secret Crafter.....stitches either real or faux, On this card i have embossed stitches around the top and left side of the text using gold.
Crazy4Challenges.......use 3 types of texture, I've used embossing around the image and edges of the card, buttons with threads.
If the shoe fits.....use burgundy,lime green and fushia.
Allsorts.....Mothers Day project.
Rosie Dees Challenge....Friendship my best friend is my mum....hence the 'you and me'.
Pile it on......Lucky me....can be interpreted to what you think,



hugs for now and thank you for having a look and leaving a comment
