Sunny Mother's Day

I was in Virginia for a graduation and came home to my latest CTMH order with the May Stamp of the Month, Friendship Bouquet.  I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for this...patiently, as you can tell.

I used Copics E99, E31 (flower center), YR15, YR21 (petals), E31 again and E21 for the shading around the flower edges.  And, yes, that is a pull top from a soda can colored with YR 15.  Love how Copics can color just about anything under the sun...or sunflower, as the case may be.

This card is entered in the following challenges:

Heart 2 Heart Mother's Day (trust me...the sentiment is on the inside)
Less is More Color Challenge: Yellow

I sponged and sanded the chocolate mat under the flower, and used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the polka dot white mat.

Well...I'm off on another trip.  The dryer has stopped, so I'd better put my fun stuff away and get back to work.

Until next time,
