I made this card especially for my Mother-in-law's Birthday. Made in advance of cause, as when it gets close to the date I will forget and have to rush like mad to make one up.
This is one of my favourite stamps which I have had for such a long time. I particularly like the suptle stamped words in the background. The embossing powder I used was a sparkly black and I was not sure if it would work with this card. Once it was all put together it worked out just fine. I did lots of distressing using my stitch picker. This little tool is just perfect in my eyes as you can do the little torn pieces on the edges too.
I am not sure why the lace flowers turned out so white in the picture as they are not actually white. They are a creamy colour. Oh well, it does not look too bad considering I am not much of a photographer.
As usual I managed to use items on my card that would fit into a few challenges. They are listed below.
