Mojo Monday meets .........

Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there.

Another day, another card.  I have followed the sketch from Mojo Monday for this. 

This card is something I have not done for a while, and even though I say so myself , I am quite pleased with it.  The images are from two Elusive Images plates - Eastern Grasses and Fresh Florals, both available from Graphicus.  I love the delicacy of the grasses, and the floral images are so life like.  This was a lucky mistake, because I stamped with Versafine, and was going to watercolour, and not concentrating properly picked up my Copics and started colouring!  Normally I would not use Versafine with Copics - however no smudges from the black ink at all.

The sentiment is computer generated, with some gems from stash.  The papers are Stampin' Up.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Mojo Monday #143 - following the sketch provided
Creative Card Crew #52 - Thank you
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Ice Cream Flavours - well my favourite of all time is Blackcurrant, which I remember from a holiday in France, so these colours represent that.  Second comes Raspberry.  Yummy!!  However,  you could put one of every flavour possible in front of me and I would eat the lot .....

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments
