Pansies for Mom

It’s Friday and time for the Colour Crazy Challenge. This challenge is an “Anything Goes” but it adds a requirement; the creation needs to include coloring in “any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.” I’ve never outgrown my love for coloring… which is why making cards is stress therapy for me!! 
This week's sponsor is Jan’s Digi Stamps and for my DT card I made a Thinking of You card that features a beautiful digi image and sentiment from Jan’s Digi Stamps named “Pansies for Mom.” My dear mother loved Pansies so creating this card makes me miss her sweet smile and caring heart!
I’m entering this card into several challenges including Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge (includes purple and green plus the twist is bees.) 
·   Digi and Front Sentiment- Jans Digi Stamps (Pansies for Mom)
·   Bee- Hero Arts Rubber Stamp (retired)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Inside Sentiment- “So Blessed” Jan’s Digi Stamps (Signs of Autumn Set)

The second card includes an embellishment on the front (serving as the “O” in “Coffee”) was
made with the coffee cup image from the digi set, a strip of paper and a scrap of acetate (to
make into the “dome.”)  The other letters were hand-sketched the cut from scraps of cardstock
and patterned coffee paper. The inside sentiment is a freebie that I found through the website
that offers hundreds of free digis, sentiments, templates, and more! And anything you
download is saved on the website for later access.
