He will so get a kick out of this one.

Penny Black Mother's Day

Here is the second I made with the Blooming Garden stamp. This one is for a couple we know, he asked me to make a Mother's Day card.  She likes pink.

Same vellum, embossing powder and Copics as the first although I cut this one out and put it on snow layering papers.
Sentiment also Penny Black from a great set: Word Express - 30-106

Thanks for taking the time!

Mother's Day

I just love this Penny Black flower, so I have used it differently on two Mother's Day Cards. This one is for my Mom, she loves yellow.

Products used:
Penny Black: Blooming Garden - 30-155
Shari Carrol and Kristina Werner used this technique, colouring with Copics on the reverse side of the embossed vellum. I really loved the soft effect so I tried it on this one and the second I will post.
