PaperPlay Challenge- For a Mum

My brother asked me to make a card for him to give to our Mum for Mother's Day. He told me he didn't want anything too girly or pretty though and instead to concentrate on more natural colours. My Mum loves to garden so I wanted to use browns and greens. I pulled out my new PTI woodgrain impression plate and inked it with Fresh Snow. Once I rolled it through the machine with some kraft card, it left a lovely impression and the ink transferred onto the embossed areas. It looks very delicate and I love the effect it leaves. I attached that to a white card base and die cut Mat Stack #5 in brown card, which I stamped with the matching stamp from Tiny Treats Birthday in brown ink. I cut a strip of Ripe Avocado cardstock and stamped it with another stamp from Tiny Treats in Memento Pear Tart ink. The Thickers were white but I inked them up with Pear Tart to match. I added some PTI Chartreuse buttons to finish it off. I would like to enter this into the PaperPlay Challenge- For a Mum. Thanks for looking :)
