How Does Your Garden Grow?

Good Morning, and what a beautiful morning it is!
Today I have a card that fits two challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketchers, who have this great sketch by Melissa Craig

And Copic Buzz, whose challenge this week is sponsored by no other than Mo Manning of Mo's Digital Pencil. The challenge here is to use one of Mo's images to create your card, and she's even got a freebie for you if you need one, so hop over and take a look.

Here's my card:

I decided to use the image supplied by Mo for this challenge, isn't he adorable, his name is Ben. I coloured him using my Copics (of course!!!).

The flower stamps are by Personal Impressions and I just used a section of each one, which I coloured with my Copics again.

I made the sentiment on my computer, and chalked it before mounting it on the red card.

The card & paper are from my stash, as are the ribbons and fancy paper clips.

Hope you like it, and thanks for dropping by.

Penni I think Ben is the cutest! I love that you used flowers to show how this sweet little one's garden grows. :D I love this card, the colors are so sweet and still very boy-ish. Mo is awesome! Thanks for playing with us at TMS, have a wonderful day!
