A {Happy Retirement} Card...

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Hello!  I was in the mood to color today, so that's how this card came to fruition.  I colored the house with a mix of regular markers and copic markers.  I colored the house and then picked out my patterned paper.  There was no planning ahead of time to make sure it all matched, luckily it did.  This is the first time I outlined my colored image with a light gray copic marker.  It's supposed to make it look like the image is popping off the page.  It really does work, it's just hard to see since the sun was shining right on my card.

I usually make cards and take photos in the morning.  But today it worked out to be the afternoon and that sun (that FINALLY made an appearance) was right over my card.  Totally not going to complain, just picture my card without those darn shadows.  
That ribbon has been in my stash for ages.  I finally used the last bit of it on this card.  I love this patterned paper.  I'm sure you can tell by all the cards I've used it on lately.  It's double sided, which I love.  

I hope the sun is out wherever you are today!  Enjoy your day!!!

PS. This is also another card that uses this week's CPS Sketch.
