A Card For Mum!


There’s a new club in town!  It’s called “Bronte and Bella’s Clubhouse” and you can join on Facebook.  We were spoiled and given this cute little “Bella” to practice coloring hair.  There is also a challenge on Facebook using this image.  Once I colored her up I figured I might as well go ahead and make a card for a ‘Mum’.  This could be used for a birthday or Mother’s day card.  I always color with Copics and the colors I used on her hair were E18, E17, E15 and E13.  For her skin I used E11, E00 and E000.  Her shirt I used BG18, BG15, BG13 and BG11.  Corners are dies by Cuttlebug, flowers are by Prima, and ‘Mum’ is a die from Simon Says Stamp. Have a wonderful weekend!

This is the sketch I used for the card layout.
