LIFE'S MOMENTS

I rarely make anniversary cards but the challenge this week was to make one for Bloggers Challenge #171.

Pretty in Pink and Always Artichoke were used along with some DP from the retired Bella Rose collection by Stampin' UP. Whenever I use Copics, I use Neenah Solar White card stock along with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

This beautiful floral image, along with the sentiment, is from the Elements of Style set, also from Stampin' UP! This image was really easy and fun to color using YR31, G21, G82, R81,R83 and R85 Copics. As my card has a really soft look to it, I decided to finish it off with 3 little pearls. Easily, this card could be a birthday, Mother's Day, sympathy or wedding card just by adding the appropriate wording inside. :)
