Thinking of You

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a great week and a fun Valentine's Day if you celebrate that!   Now it's time for the weekend and hopefully a little extra crafting time!  I'm here a card I made for two of my DTs, Guylou's Inimitability and the Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  I rarely have the opportunity to combine these projects, but it worked out this week, so I went for it.   The theme for the Copic/ProMarker challenge is "thinking of you" - can be general or sympathy and Guylou's challenge is "three in a row, that's the way to go" - a BINGO challenge.

First, here are the details for the challenge at Guylou's Inimitability:

Kim is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to use the BINGO card below to select the elements for our project.  I chose button(s), free space, ribbon.

Challenge Deadline:
You have until 10:00 PM (EDT) on February 28th to link your project to the Inlinkz at the end of the challenge post.
How to participate:
You may enter only ONE project per challenge, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries.  If you don't have one of Guylou's digistamps, you can check the online store where several freebies are available.  
Challenge Prizes:
A winner will be selected randomly and will win:
1. A $10.00 gift certificate from Guylou's online store
2. An invitation to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Melon Mambo and the patterned papers are from the Pebbles Sunny Side collection.    My sweet image is Leah from Guylou's Inimitability.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored here with my Copics.  I added a touch of Stickles to the pink flowers on her hat.  She was cut out with my Cameo and popped up on foam tape.  I stitched around the background papers and the image frame.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some ribbon, a flower button and a few heart gems finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit both the Guylou's Inimitability blog and the Copic/ProMarker challenge to check out the beautiful creations from both DTs for the respective challenges!    I would love to see your creations for either or both challenges!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
