This challenge was to create a Mother's Day card for Grandma from a child. My 12 yo DS would love to send this card to my mother who will be 92 this month! I'm her baby and we adopted three children later in life; that's the reason for the age spread!
This is only the second time I've used this stamp from All Night Media. I love how he seems to pop out of the frame! I've been using some soda can pop tops which my DH painted for me. This one just seems to go well with the ribbon and the frame. I used a texture plate (critters) and ran it through my CB machine. I had another piece with the critters on it so I colored and cut out the dragonfly. I hand wrote the sentiment. TFL!!!
