Quack quack!

Next week is my grandmother in law's birthday - she's a wonderful lady and so active for her age too!

I had to make her a special card for her birthday next week so here it is, a lovely big 8x8 square card:

I used vintage photo distress ink to stamp the beautiful crafty individuals duck stamp repeatedly onto white card, then brushed water on to blend.  While that was drying I inked up the stamp again using distress markers in forest moss and olive green (i think) and stamped that onto white card again.
I covered the card blank with a ribbed beige-ish piece of paper and added the lace ribbon, the green paper is from papermania and was edged with an xcut punch.  I matted both the stamped elements onto brown card and layered everything up. 

I would like to enter my card in the fashionable stamping challenge which is 'let's get messy and ink' all the details for the challenge can be found here

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, Claire x
