My Life is Blessed

Hello Everyone!!!  Today's card has been made for this week's CopicOz Challenge, hosted by yours truly!!!  :)  Instead of making a Mother's Day card, I've challenged you to create a card to Celebrate Women!  If you want to make a Mother's Day card, than GREAT that works, but you CAN make a card (or any kind of project as long as you use your Copic Markers!) for any of those special women in your life.....Sister, Grandmother, Aunt, BFF!  Let's see you celebrate those wonderful women in your life and link up your project to the CopicOz Blog HERE!!

For today's card I started with a base of white, layered with deep pink and more white and topped with some MME Quite Contrary DP which I sewed around the edge.  The flower image is from Flourishes' Lenten Rose stamp set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R81, R83, R85, G40, G82, G85, G99, BG000, BG0000, E51, E53, C0, C1, C3, 0).  It was cut out with Large Rectangle Nestabilities and matted with light pink bazzill cut with the matching scallop nesties.  The sentiment is from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set, also stamped in Tuxedo Black and cut out with Fancy Tags Three Spellbinders.  (I actually trimmed one of the top flourish bits so it would fit neatly under the flower petal.)  While it was still in the Spellbinders Die, I airbrushed it with my R85 Copic Marker.  Both the image and sentiment panels were popped up on foam tape.  I finished by adding a wide white satin ribbon and a couple of Kasiercraft Snow White Pearls.

Stamps - Lenten Rose, Spring Bouquet (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Deep Pink and Light Pink Bazzill, White, MME Quite Contrary DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Fancy Tags 3, Large Rectangle and Lg Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities, White Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Sewing Machine, Foam Tape.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you play along with me at CopicOz!!  :)

I survived Sunday night's performance and my son did an amazing job. Glad I had a big Kleenex supply LOL! A very touching and moving performance. Great memory to treasure in my mommy heart. Hope all is well for you (((hugs))).
