Another card for my MIL, but this time this is the card we will be giving her next week.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges :
Sketch Saturday - the sketch below,
Tiddly Inks - vintage mother's day
Pollycraft - anything goes
Papertake weekly - anything goes
This is the sketch from sketch saturday:


And here's the card :



Looking at it now, I think I could have gotten away with stretching the image sideways as its a stylised image you wouldn't really know.
The image is coloured with sakura metallic pens for the flowers then copic for the water.
The base colour layer was done using distress inks and ranger perfect pearl mists onto linen effect card.  The vase and sentiment were both printed onto the same linen effect card.
The postcard stamp (from Lili of the Valley) was first stamped in distress ink, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then distress slightly with the same ink.
The swirly paper and the strip with ribbons on was also inked and heat embossed.
Hugs,
H xx
