A time to get inky

Hi all,
I can't believe it is Wednesday already. We have been busy all week, but I'm not really sure what with! It was my Mum's birthday on Monday and it was lovely to be able to spend it with her. My parents are still here and I think the girls will be upset when they leave next week as they are loving all the attention.

I made this for my Mum. The image is by Tim Holtz and is stamped on a background of Victorian velvet and vintage photo distress inks. It took me ages to stamp the image cleanly and I ended up with ink everywhere. The ribbon is from my stash and I'm not sure where the papers are from, sorry.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
