My Mom's Birthday

I have had a blast today in my loft. I bought a new stamp plate from Creative Expressions and I was so inspired that I made 2 cards with it. This one is for my mom off my boys. My only 'dislike' on the card is the greeting plaque. However, I tried to take it off and almost wrecked the card, so there it stays.

You can't see, but I spritzed the backing paper with Glitz Mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I then stamped and embossed both roses with black Versafine and clear embossing powder. I took some Cut 'n' Dry and a Walnut Stain Distressing ink pad and distressed the edge sprinkling a little gold embossing powder as I went. The roses are stamped and embossed again on some seperate paper and coloured using Twinks. I am really pleased with this card. It's my first proper attempt at distressing and I LOVE it!
