Miss you Mum !!

To make this card I used one of Alison Acton's beautiful new stamps from Whiff of Joy I coloured it with Copic markers and distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz inks before stitching on the sewing machine.
The flower I made by punching scalloped circles of Blueberry Hill paper and scrunching them up then adding a sewn butter to the center.
The base card is just half a sheet of 12"x12" soft petrol coloured textured card stock folded in half to made a 6"x6" card
The die cuts from my shop Die cut Dreams
I am entering this one in to the following challenges
Sophisticats Challenge Miss you
