I'm a guest designer!

I was honored to be asked to be a Guest Designer at For Fun Challenges for two weeks. The first challenge is for "your best girl" which could be your Mom, sister, daughter or BFF. I chose to make a card for my BFF for all that she has done so far for me this year!

Stamps for this card are from the April release from Verve. The flowers are colored with Copic Markers and then cut out using the new dies that coordinate with the stamp set. I used some foam tape to pop them up, one on top of the other. I punched out a few leaf stems from the Martha Stewart Crafts leaf punch. The satin ribbon is colored using the same Copic markers as the flowers and the bow easy used to tie the bow. 

As you can see, I did stamp a flower on the inside of the card and color it! Thank goodness I used some heavy cardstock for the base of this card and it didn't bleed through!


I encourage you to play along in this challenge this week as it fits right in with Mother's Day and the need to make a card or two.

Thanks for stopping in! I'd love to know what you think and don't forget to stop by the For Fun Challenge blog!
