Here's Sketch #122.....



I decided to make a background on watercolour paper using a wash of Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  While that dried I stamped the wreath from this stamp set with Ranger Black Archival Ink and die-cut it with the co-ordinating die.  I cut an additional two wreaths from white cardstock and layered them all together for extra dimension and durability.  

I then applied a very loose wash of Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to the wreath.



I stamped my sentiment from this Prima stamp set in Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.


The finishing touch was some pink ribbon.  I did make this card just before Mother's Day, but this design would translate well to other occasions by simply stamping a different sentiment.
