Mom card.

I am lucky to still have my mom.  She just had a birthday recently, and my father got her a new car, an Ipad 2, and a cruise (they took it the last week in February).  Mothers are wonderful especially later in life.  They are no longer an authoritative figure (eat your peas, make your bed, I would not go out in the rain with THAT on), but they are your best friend who now ask if you ate your peas, cleaned your house, and ask if you need a jacket)  She will always be special to me.

I am all about simple cards, and this is no exception.   The ingredients for this card are:

Card blank
Digi stamp or regular rubber stamp (in this case I simply printed a digi stamp from my computer)
Ink for edging ( used Stampin ! up's Regal Rose )
Pop dots for popping up the image.
Copic Markers (V15, V12, BG72, B91, YR00, E53, R24, YR12, G17, G82, Y15, E29, E25, 0)  The breakdown is as follows:

Hair: E29 and E25
Face: E53 and YR00
Lips: R24
Eye Lid: B91
Flowers in Hair: BG72, V12,Y15
Flower bouquet: G17 and G82 for leaves; YR12 and Y15 for flowers; E25 for sprigs

I used the 0 (blender) to help take away any ink I did not want on the image.

I printed the image on white cardstock, matted it in the same color.  Next, I colored the image.  Note:  I took no special classes other than read from scrapbooking books and magazine on how to basically color with Copic markers.  there are classes you can take, and one day I will become certified.  For now that is not in the financial plans.  I placed ink around the edges (my signature move).   I already had a card blank that I previously rounded the corners on.  I popped up the image with pop dots and placed on card.   I left the inside blank for now, but this is the card I am giving my mother on mother's day.  It is nice to have something done so I can concentrate on other things, and hopefully my brother and sister will follow through on that day.

I encourage you to take part in the Challenge over on The Card a day Blog.  Until then, I will see you later, and thanks for stopping by.
