Dinner is marinating, mother's day shopping done, a beautiful day.

The most I can do for my Friend is simply be his friend.

This card is for Card Positioning Systems, and their lovely sketch for a fine Sunday afternoon.
The color scheme is monochromatic and I used a citrusy green.  2 Red Bananas had the challenge of monochromatic today.
The Gems are Making Memories
The paper is Core'dinations Black Magic and Urban Rhapsody from K and Company
I used Quickutz embossing swirls and sanded the black off to show the yellowy-green inside of the paper.
I used Lime Green stickles to give a green hue to the black paper
Then distressed with my Tim Holtz distress tool
Everything that didn't look green enough got a once over with my Copic YG03 marker.
How ya Bean?

This is for a Sketch at Crafts 4 Eternity
The paper is Basic Grey Archaic
The coffee cup stamp is Stampin' Up! Pun Fun and the saying is A-Muse
The ribbon is DCWV uptown.
I inked with Versa Magic Midnight Black around everything as well.
This was a fun card to make!!!
And use butterflies challenge at Ann's Creative Nook
The saying is Best Occasions Vellum sayings
I used my Crop a Dile II Big Bite to put in all the eyelets
The Velvet cording is from Adornaments
The Butterfly is Quickutz, and the yellow orange/yellow part is flocked paper!
I then inked with Burnt Sienna Color Box Chalk.

Your mother wheres combat boots...(if only)

Design Originals is where I got the ephemera
The sticker letters are K & Company
The sentiment is stamped one letter at a time with Hero Arts Alphabet stamps.
I used Xmas Red and Golden Rod Stickles to glitz up our mom of the hour~
And Fiskar's Corner edger scissors for the photo corners
This is a 3 for 1
His Holy Name (Redeemer)

I used Core'dinations Black magic and doodled the border free hand with a gold gel pen
I sanded away the black for the orange inside to show through for the stamped word Redeemer.
The border is Basic Grey Ambrosia
The He has Risen Stamp is Heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder and the stamp is from Art Impressions Stamps
The Angel at the Grave is Hand Drawn by me, and the passage referenced in the corner is:
"Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here; for he has been raised as he said."
