DT CARD Secret Crafter Saturday #71

Good morning from the sunny east coast!  Gosh its soo sunny here and it feels quite warm outside although we had  quite a frost last night!!

Saturday means one thing, time again for another DT card for SCSC.  This weeks challenge, set by the lovely Debby is

Mother's Day

Some of our international friends have already celebrated this but in the UK, this is rapidly approaching.  You can therefore create any mother related card be it a birthday or a new mum!!  Here's what I came up with..

I wanted to use some very neglected floral stamps along with some pretty mesh like ribbon.  I quite like the finished result.


Stamps - Penny Black
Colouring Mediums - Watercolour Pencils
Text - done in Word on Lappy
Pink Border paper - Basic Grey
Ribbons - both Hobbycraft
Dew Drops

We can't wait to see everyone's creations for this one.  Don't forget to check out blogs of my teamies for their fab makes.  Thanks for stopping by
