Hi everyone, Hope youre having a good Monday!

I made this card for my mum on Mother's Day so now I can show it to you.

The images are fantastic stamps from Oxford Impressions - they are so good they really look like photos.

I also made a matching box for it.

I made the background paper by swooshing it in some distress inks sprayed with water. Then embossed it in the cuttlebug.

I wrapped some lace around the top and bottom parts and attached some pearls for detail.

The Stampsmith are hosting a challenge where you can use any stamp - TSC11 The female of the species
