Mother's Day

I came across this stamp in my drawer, which I haven't used for about a year or so and thought it about time to use it again.
I began by colouring it with distress inks, but the colours I had didn't give me the depth of colour that I wanted, so I ended up going over it with my Copics.
I mounted the image on Nesties and arranged the card in a simple layout. I made a tag out of Nesties by punching a couple of ribbon holes, for the computer generated sentiment.
The scallop punch at the bottom of the card is from Martha Stewart.
The papers are Pink Petticoat Rainbow collection.
I am entering it for these challenges
Magical Crafts - Something for Mum
Quixotic Challenges - Something for Mum
Crafty Cardmakers - Tri Colour - Analogous - Green through to purple... I learned something here! (I didn't know that I would be getting an education as well as making a card!)
I have already entered a card for the Quixotic Challenges this time round, but that was for a new mum and this is for Mother's Day.
