Copic Colour Challenge --- Mother's Day Tea Party

This is my second post today --- doing a bit of catching up!  Who knows?  There just might be a third one ... nah!

Anyway, the Copic Colour Challenge gave us a lovely set of colors to work with this week.  I replaced the BV02 with BV01 Viola.

As I said in the previous post I am focused on Mother's Day this week.  When I saw this illustration from Mo Manning, memories of dressing up in my mother's clothes came flooding back!  Remember when we just couldn't wait to grow up and fill those beautiful high heels of Mom's?  These days I wouldn't be able to walk across the room in those heels!  Here is the sweet illustration "Tea Party" for Mother:

I used the Martha Stewart punch around set on a 10.5 x 5 inch piece of white cardstock, folded in half and lined with lime green dp.  The striped dp coordinates with the lime green.  Both are from Daisy D's.  The illustration is colored with the selected Copics and shades slightly darker for depth. The sentiment is computer generated.  The boa was my inspiration for using the feathers rather than flowers and the usual embellies.  Maybe I am a bit biased, but I really love this card! It is fairly simple, but so much fun! 

Isn't she cute? I love those long white gloves! 

I hope all the mothers out there are treated to a day of love and laughter... and maybe a spot of tea!
