Happy April Fool's Day! Don't worry, none of my post is an April Fool's joke. ;) I'm told though that my grandson happily played some tricks on his mom and dad and his big sister this morning. I'm sure that big sister figured out some way to pay him back.
On to my card. Last week on The Outlawz site, we were told that it was Colleen Holmes birthday. If you don't know, she is the creator of The Outlawz. In order to honor her, it was suggested that for the Greeting Card Monday challenge, we should CASE one of two cards selected that Colleen has created. She does great work. Here is one of the cards made by Colleen.
Tossa Birthday from Bildmalarna. I love their images. It is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on XPress It Blending Paper. The sentiment is Stampin Up Circle of Friendship. I used a 1" punch to punch it out and then matted it with Stampin Up Pale Plum cardstock and used a 1 1/4" punch to punch it out. After mounting the sentiment on the Pale Plum circle, I used my Deckle scissors to cut around the circle to give it a little texture.
I used Gina K Designs 120# cardstock for the base of the card. The designer paper is Basic Gray Kioshi collection. I used my Nestabilities Large Circle and Large Scallop Circle to cut out the image and the mat for the image, again using SU Pale Plum. To finish it off, I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts - Cherry Blossoms and Asters and punched out the leaves using Martha Stewart's Leaf Branch punch. This one will get a really good workout. I use it quite often. In the upper right corner I placed 4 Dew Drops. I also added some Diamond Glaze on the cake icing.
The Copic markers I used to color the image were: B0000, B00, B01; C1, C2; E18, E30, E40, E41; E50, E51, E53; R01; R14, R24; V01, V04; Y02, Y06, Y15, Y17, Y18, Y19, YG03, and YG11.
I'm also submitting this for the Oozak.com April challenge - Anything Goes.
That's it. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments. I do appreciate all of them.
