Morning girls
My wee Mum will be celebrating her 70th birthday this weekend so I thought I'd show you the 
card I've made for her.   I've used this gorgeous lady from Clarity Stamps.  I love the elegance of this one.
I stamped her with brown ink rather than black, coloured her with copics and pop dotted her hat for some added depth.

Now, a few days ago I was lucky enough to receive some MIC paper for using with copics, or any alcohol based pens for that matter.  Can I just say that the jury is out on this paper:(  I'm not best pleased with the results I've achieved with it.  Whether or not I need some more practise with it I'm not sure but I much prefer the card I've been using which is 300gms from my local stationer, I get better results.  Anyhoooo just thought I'd share that with ya!
The papers are from (?) yip, I'd a 12x12 sheet in me stash but it had no name on the back so your guess is as good as mine where it's from lol.  Brads, ribbon and lace are also from me stash.  I've left this quite simple, just adding a couple of flowers to embellish as me  Mum is not a fussy person at all.
So, that's my card for today, thanks for popping in:)
