Thank You Card

I made a card over the weekend for my mom.  She is great mom with a big heart and I love her so much.  I haven't sent her a card in awhile and thought this one would be perfect.  I got a cute digi stamp from Tiddly Inks and gave a try at copic markers.  I have managed to collect about 22 markers in over a year.  Because of the expense I only pick one up here and there at my local scrap store.  I went on You tube to watch a few video's on how to shade and color with them.  I have to say I find it hard to catch on.  Maybe if I had a lot more markers it would be easy but I don't know.  It doesn't seem like the kind of thing you can just pick up real easy at least for me.  I think I am going to stick to using my colored pencils with mineral spirits for now.  Maybe use the markers for the skin color.  When I made this card I used a cricut lite Lacy Labels cart for the center piece background.  Well I'm off to put this card in the mail for her.  Have a great day!
