Hi.  It's Wednesday again and time for another Perfect Sentiment challenge.  This week's challenge is to create a card with a sentiment appropriate for any season or holiday.  The sentiment must be on the front of the card.  The twist is to using the technique of Paper Piercing.  Without further ado, here's my card.
The holiday I chose was Mother's Day.  This week our sponsor is Bugaboo stamps and they provided a digi stamp to each member of the DT to use for our card this week.  We were able to pick out our own image. There were lots to choose from, but I chose this one because it was called "Margaret."  :)   Here is a link to their store.  Bugaboo stamps
I printed the image on Copic Blending cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.  The base of the card is Gina K 120# white cardstock.  I used was Stampin Up Baja Breeze for all the mats.  The paper is from Basic Gray Sweet Threads.  The sentiment is from SU's Fancy Flexible Phrases.  I stamped it using Baja Breeze ink and then punched it out using the SU small oval punch and popped it up to give it dimension.  I used the Nestabilities Classic Oval for the image and the Scallop Oval for the mat.  The flower is from Recollections.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I love this ribbon and wish I remembered where I got it from.  I used my Bowdabra to make the bow and then glued it to the strip of ribbon.  My card layout inspiration came from Pam Sparks.  Love her work.

The Copics I used were Outline - BG0000, Skirt - BG000, BG01, BG10, BG11; Hair - E23, E25, E27; Skin -E50, E51, E53; Lips - R29; Flowers - RV00, RV02, RV55, Y23; Blouse - YG00, TG01, YG21; Glasses - W1, W2.

Now that you've checked out my card, pop on over to Perfect Sentiments Challenge and check out the rest of the Design Team's creations and be inspired and then come join us and create your own card.  You could win the prize this week which is 7 free digi stamps or the equivalent of $21.  That is a fabulous prize.  Wish I could qualify.  ;)  Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all your comments.  If you Follow me, I'll follow you.

  9. The Nature Neuroscience study raises the possibility of swapping mass effect classes online I was a kid,
    if he were here today, I know, you must manage the business within a
    stated budget. You must shoot down the enemy across 6 different locations in America while
    avoiding bombs and missile attacks. That experience stuck
    with me and I was straight over at his house, playing through it before he
    could even close the front door.
