Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #13 --- Happy Birthday!

Believe it or not, this is indeed the second post tonight!  I've just been so excited about all the new images that have come my way recently!  For this post I am entering the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge for the first time.  Today I colored my first Mo Manning images and can't wait to do more!  I am crazy about them!

Those of you who follow my blog know that I love, love, love Copics and use them nearly exclusively.  Tonight is no different, except that I have changed up my style of coloring somewhat for these images.  I also hope to try other media, also, especially water color.  But for now, here is my card for the challenge:

Meet Jack and Ginger.  Per the theme for this challenge it looks like Jack is about to present Ginger with some birthday daisies.  Don't they look sweet?  They remind me of my aunt and uncle who, at 88 and 89 years young do still hold hands and look at each other so lovingly.

Close up shows more of the details.  The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Origins stack and the flowers from Paper Studio Spare Parts.  I replaced the centers with pearl brads. 

The sentiment is actually from The Print Shop Pro Publisher.  I wish I could write sentiments like this!

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at both of my cards today.  I expect you'll be seeing more of Jack and Ginger, as well as many of the wonderful art from Mo Manning, in the near future.  Did I mention these are digital stamps?  Oh, my, yes!!  Instant gratification -- love it!

Have a colorful day!

In God We Trust

Oh I love this image, Barb. I hope DH and I are as happy next year. LOL Not quite, but I'm feeling the age today. Really beautiful sentiment too. Woo Hoo, two posts in one day! I'm so impressed that I forgot to say "Hugs", in the last post. xxD
