Lacy Sunshine Anniversary Card - with a dash of cute factor......

There is nothing quite like half a days notice that I need to make a card.... luckily for her it was my mum that asked  ;)  So my instructions were an Anniversary card.  I found out this morning that it was for a 60th wedding anniversary but hey,  I am sure the recipients will think it is as cute as mum and I do lol.

Due to the serious time restraints I decided to print the image directly on the card front and not to go too frou frou.  I have been doing some colouring classes through Heather Valentine who owns Lacy Sunshine Stamps ( you can find information on her Facebook group) so I decided that I would get in an extra bit of practice with Emmi Lou Boo - Bubble Valentine.  I am so pleased with how this turned out.

I used copic markers with Gina K luxury cardstock, which is my preferred paper for alcohol markers, and added some highlights with gel pen.  The sentiment is is a really old SU one that comes with the words separated and it took me yonks to get it straight and placed properly. I outlined the front panel with a sharpie poster paint pen.  The ribbon and teal cardstock are both american crafts.

Thanks so much for visiting, I would love to know what you think of her so please leave me a comment :)
Happy Scrapping.
