I absolutely adore this image from Mo’s Digital Pencil. It’s called Wonderful Day. It was so much fun to color. Usually I color my sky in really light colors, but Jenn suggested to try some darker colors to imitate Texas sky. I love how this turned out.

I printed the image out on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut it with a Classic Square Nestabilities die. Next I colored her in with Copic Markers ( headband, pants cuffs: Y32, Y17, YR15, YR18, Jeans: B0000, B91, N3, Hair: E99, E19, E29, Shoes: N1, N3, N5, N7, Skin: YR0000, YR000, YR00, YR01, Shirt: YG23, YG25, YG67, R20, R21, R22, Ground: YG11, YG13, YG17, W2, Sky: B0000, B000, B01, B12, B14). The image was layered on a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Classic Scallop Square Nestabilities.

Four 2 1/4″ squares were cut out of Echo Park Springtime Paper. On two of them one corner was rounded before they were stitched to a 4 3/4″ square of Canyon Brown cardstock. The two bottom corners were rounded as well.

May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around the center of the layers before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Textured Whisper White cardstock folded in half. Again the bottom corners were rounded.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Clearly Sentimental About You. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock, which was cut and embossed with Tag Trio die.  Silver curling ribbon was used to tie the tag to the bow. Silver Recollection Pearls finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
