I started making this card at my Girls Night and finally finished it last night. I made it for my daycare provider as she is retiring from daycare and moving into another field. I didn't have my Memento ink with me so I wasn't able to color her with my Copics. I then remembered how much I loved my copics. I don't have very many but I do miss the few I have when I can't use them. I was able to fit this card into quite a few challenges one at Stamp Something, one at Tuesday Morning Sketches, one at Raise the Bar, and the last one at Get Sketchy.
The sketch for this card is from Get Sketchy. When I was flipping through some challenge blogs I found a color challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches (Chocolate Chip, Always Apricot, Very Vanilla). I found the perfect pattern paper to fit this challenge from Bo Bunny's Flutter Butter Collection. I stamped "lattebella" from Stamping Bella on Very Vanilla Cardstock and coloured her with Stampin' Up markers. I mounted her on a light yellowy peach paper as I didn't have any Always Apricot. I added brown photo corners with my EK Success corner punch. The challenge at Raise the Bar was to have something in "3". I wanted to put on 3 brown buttons but couldn't find any I liked so I went with the Kiwi Kiss Corduroy buttons from Stampin' Up. I also didn't have any skinny brown ribbon to tie through the buttons, so I took my white skinny ribbon and coloured it with my Brown Copic. I really love this trick. I created the sentiment on my computer with Adobe Photoshop. I made the letters look embossed and added a small shadow. It is hard to see in the picture. I mounted this on the same light peachy scrap that I had. I added four small brown pearls in the corners
to finish it off and add some balance to that side of the card. I also decorated the inside of the card with my left over scraps. When I was finish I realized that my card fit into the recipe challenge at Stamp Something (designer paper, ribbon & buttons).
