Mothering Sunday

Last Sunday was "Mothering Sunday" here in Ireland and other parts of the world also know as "Mothers Day". Usually I have to post the card to my Mom but this year I was lucky enough to have her come visit us here. This is the card I made her.

I tore the right edge, just for a different look! Than edged it with pink ink.  The backing paper, strip in the middle, is a down load for Pink Petticoat. The pink ribbon I got from my SP (Secret Pal) last year.
The image is a stamp that I have for an age, but don't seem to use much of. I stamped it first with black ink onto a scrap piece of paper, then with watermark ink (I did wipe most of the excess ink off the stamp first, as I did not want to damage the watermark inkpad) and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. That's why the "clear" embossing looks grey. I then coloured the image with ProMarkers. I cut it out with a oval nestibility die cut.
The sentiment, "Joy, Hugs and Smiles" comes from a PaperTrey set. I cut this out using a label 4 nestibility die cut.

Actually it looks much nicer IRL.

Hope you like,

 P.S. I have decided to put all post justified to the centre, what do you think, is it better or should I leave itjustified to the left? Let me know what you think, please.

You might just have noticed that I go right down the middle...haaa!
Looks good....I like!
That stamp is really pretty...excellent choice for Mothers Day, Vicky....and you heat embossed? I haven't done that in ages, and it always looks so good, doesn't it, so I really should. Lovely creation, me ickle Irish coleen!

Gorgeous card, love the stamp. Justification looks good, I enjoyed reading the post.
Different amounts of text need different types of justification. I love straight edges on the left & right, but you need a lot of text for that or it looks funny! I've only tried left justified text so far :)

Love the printed paper, does it use a lot of ink?

This is so delicate! Perfect for a Mother's Day card. Our Mother's Day here in Australia is the second Sunday in May.... Thanks for sharing with us at the Card Crafter's Circle!
hugs and blessings,
