Daughters Christmas Card

I always forge to make my daughter a Christmas Card, oh and really bad Mum I normally forget her birthday card too! Soooooo this year I decided that I really needed to get a few brownie points! So I made her this card.

I have used a SWALK stamp and the sentiment reads "A hug is the perfect gift ..... one size fits all and it's easily returned"

I have coloured it with Promarkers and added flowers that I have made myself as she loves them. I have distressed (ok I tried too!) the circle with Pumice Stone ink, and added a little red ribbon to finish off.

I hope you like it,

I would like to enter it into the following challenges
