For You Mom

This is the card I made for my Mom for Mother's Day.



For this card, I used two sets from Doodle Pantry. I used the software on my computer to put the Fruit Hat from the April release onto the bird from the Everyday Birdies set. I absolutely love these birds that Laurie draws. Aren't they awesome? I colored the bird and hat with Copic markers. The colors I used are YR12 and YR14 for the orange; R22 and R24 for the strawberries; V09 and R39 for the grapes; Y02, Y06 and G20 for the banana; G24 and G28 for all the leaves; R02 and R05 for the ribbon; E51, E53 and E55 for the hat; Y02, Y04, Y06 and Y35 for the bird; Y35 and Y38 for the bird's legs and beak. I used 2 of the Opulent Ovals dies from Spellbinders to make the frame and I used another one to cut out the bird. The card stock is Ivory, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight from Stampin' Up. I used a corner punch from EK Success on the Daffodil Delight card stock and a corner rounder punch from EK Success on the Rich Razzleberry card stock. I added a crystal flower flourish at the bottom and clear crystals on the sides and top of the frame. The sentiment is a rub-on from Stampin' Up.

I am submitting this card to the following challanges:

  13. I am always so impressed with people who can blend images using their computers. For me, that's like speaking a foreign language. The best I can do is print both images and fussy cut them to put them together. This is gorgeous, Susan, and I love your coloring and fancy frame around the image.
