Three Clovers Designs Thursday challenge

Happy Thursday everyone!! That means the end of the week is almost here, and it also means it's time for another challenge over at Three Clover Designs! This week, Kerry asked us to make a card for Mom or women, and use either ribbon or lace. Perfect timing for Mother's Day, although the card I made could be used any day of the year. I used some of my favorite paper, Basic Grey Boxer line, and the cardstock is Bazzill. That cute stamp is from The Cutting Cafe'. It's in a set called All About Mom that has tons of stamps that can be used year round!


I just printed it out at the size I wanted, and then colored them with my copic markers. I used E08, B21, and for the shadow lines, I used BV20. The scalloped background was cut out with my Expressions machine and the Storybook cartridge.
That's it for today! We'd love it if you would join us in the challenge over at Three Clover Designs! Wait until you see the fabulous creations the rest of the inspiration team came up with! There is some beautiful work to be seen!
OH! I wanted to let you know that I get asked a lot of questions about how I use my copic markers to get Tilda's hair the shade of Auburn red that I love so much. So I'm going to attempt a tutorial on how I do it. I hope to have it posted this weekend. Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Have a great day!
