Happy Mothers' Day

My second card for this week is based on the layout at Try Stampin' On Tuesday #203.
I decided to create the background 'alternating bands' with my brayer and that Kaleidacolor Ink pad I've had for mmmmany years - unbelievable - it still works and much richer in colour than the photo. I stamped this bowl of flowers at my last visit to friend Vikkis and decided to use an oval shape and also die cut a scalloped oval to frame it. I coloured the image with Distress Inks and mounted it over a length of ricrac braid and finished the card with a small sentiment. I am also joining my friend Karen who is making Mothers' Day cards for the Aussie Troops, so we'll see how many I can rustle up. Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
