Happy Sunday! =) I am sharing a card that I made using one of the fabulous images from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I used the super duper cute Ben for my card. Don't you love this cute little boy? He makes me smile and I really enjoyed coloring him. =)

Ben is printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then cut and embossed it with a Standard Circles Large die. The image is then colored with Copic markers. The piece is matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Big Scalloped Circles Large die before I stitched the layers together.

The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Classic Ovals Small die then matted with the same patterned paper cut using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Small die. The patterned paper is from the Lim Twist Out of the Blue collection by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is from the Victorian Fripperie set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all for today. For more inspiration using Mo's images, please visit Mo's Dream Team Blog.

Also, I found out about the Nikki Sivils Scrapbook Supply Drive from the super talented and sweet Amy's blog and decided that I'll help spread the word. I think we all have some supplies sitting around being neglected, so why not help these in need! =)

Hope you have a fabulous day! =)

Oh this is so adorable Alice! Your coloring on him is awesome and as always I adore your paper collection! Such a sweet card. :-)
Great idea for the Joplin ladies.I know one of my first thoughts when the tornado came through my town a month ago was, "oh I hope the windows don't bust and soak my paper". (you know, this is AFTER you think I hope I don't get killed. Its a natural sequence of thoughts...."I hope I don't get killed. I hope my paper stays dry.") What a strange bunch of people crafters are. LOL

Tasha said...

He is such a lovely and caring boy and you have coloured him so well and brought him to life. Wonderful card.

Anita Rex said...

Hi Alice love the papers you used and could that image be any sweeter? Also as I read your post I thought to myself that you put a lot of work into writing out how you made the card and linking everything up! Great job!
