Sophisticats Week 19

Wonderful Mum

Good morning and welcome to Monday, didn't that come around quickly! I've finally caught up on the 753 unread posts - that's what happens when you go awol for a few days, so should get round to leaving some love & comments again now!

It's Challenge no. 19 over at Sophisticats and it's a bit of special one this week as Lisa has set the theme and it's in honour of her mum who passed away three years ago, so your challenge is to make a mum/miss you/or tribute project.

I've used the beautiful A Rose is a Rose stamp on my card, I don't have this set yet but I stamped this image when I visited my SU Granny Rachel a while ago and I thought it was just right for a Mum card, I've kept the rest of the card quite simple so the rose is the highlight, with a bit of distressing for added texture.

Here's the details - all Stampin' Up! unless stated otherwise:
Stamps - A Rose is A Rose; Flight of the Butterfly
Inks - Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss
DSP - Tea & Crumpets
Cardstock - Apricot Appeal; Certainly Celery
Ribbon - Apricot Appeal
Button - Playground Designer Buttons
Cutter kit - for distressing
Sentiment - from stash

Hope you can join us this week & TFL x
