Happy Mother's Day-Penny Black

I made this card for my Mama and one for my Sweetie's Mama as well. Add a tin of Russian Teacakes and my Mom was so happy!

I used a cute Penny Black image and tried to give it a copic "watercolor" look. I had most of this card finished and then the The Sweet Stop Challenge came out on Saturday and boy did this sketch help me with the finishing touches...the flowers and the punched border were additions I added from the sketch. I am truly a sketch addict!

I hope you all have had a great day today!

Card Details:


Stamps: get-together (3699K Penny Black), I love you sentiment from the Penny Black acrylic set-piece of my heart.  The word Mother is part of an Amuse stamp that says Mother in many different languages (9-8133F)

Cardstock: Creative Imaginations flower DP, Red and Olive DP is Stamping Up. Real Read and Old Olive cardstock.
