My brother asked if I would make a card for him to give Mum on Mothers Day, I have been quietly going through all my rubber stamps and found this one which I have had for many years, it is wood mounted and there is a label stamp to match the main stamp.
I have used an 8 x 8 scalloped card, I used an 8 x 8 embossing folder to emboss the background card, I used Momento Black Tuxedo ink for the large image and label, all pink card have been mounted onto black sating card stock.  I added some black organza flowers, pink organza double bow, swirl gems and a computer generated sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I hope that you like my card, thank you so much for visiting.

cebelica said...

Hi hun,
Thank you very much for leaving me such a lovely message on the blog.I really appreciate your kind words!
I think your card turned out beautifully! I really like pink and black together, but I don't usually do it, because I'm afraid that when I will do it, my card will become too "dark". But I might give it a try once. I like the elegant look of your card. The image is fab and that bling is a perfect touch. Hugs! xx

Jac said...

Oh Lorraine, this is stunning, it is so feminine and elegant what a beautiful stamp, hope all is well with you and Jess xx

KraftyKoolKat said...

This is so lovely Lorraine. I am sure your brother was thrilled with it and can't wait to give it to your Mum. I love the soft background and then the darker colour of glitz.

I feel guilty as I never get time these days to post on the Joanna Sheen forum. I know they are a great bunch and I do hope you can get back in the swing of things by chatting on there.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
