Timeless Tuesday ~ In With the NEW!

Good day everyone!  I hope your week is starting out great.  This week seems to be a hectic one around our household.  I'm looking forward to a calmer end of the week though.

This week, the fabulous Cheryl Lea is our Timeless Tuesday Challenge hostess and she is challenging us to...

What a great challenge for our NEW year!

I have a friend who is going through IVF this week and I made this card as a way of saying "I'm rootin' for you".  She's had a tough time the last 3 years and lost 2 babies already so I'm hoping for them that the third time is the charm.

I kept my card this week SUPER SIMPLE... a CAS style card... which I have the hardest time with 'cuz I love throwing all kinds of layers or texture or embellishments on my card.  But for this card, I just wanted my coloured image to speak.  Plus... I have been in the mood for the last couple of days just to sit down and just simply colour so this was the perfect opportunity!

I started out with a A2 card base made from Classic White Cardstock.  If you are colouring with Copics, this is the ONLY paper I use and HIGHLY recommend!!

Then I stamped my bouquet from the "Summer Blossoms" stamp collection using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.  Then I coloured my image using the following Copic Markers:
BG72, BG75, R20, R21, R22, R35, R37, R39, RV14, RV17, RV63, RV66, RV69, Y00, Y17, YG13, YG21, YG23, YG25, YG93 and YG95.

I took my sentiment "Hope Happens" from the "Magnolias" stamp set and inked it up with both Memento "Rose Bud" and "Lilac Posies" inks and stamped it as my greeting.

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope I've inspired you today to pick up some stamps and have fun colouring a CAS style card!  Be sure to visit the DT's blogs and leave them a little blog love...
Thanks for stopping by! We hope you'll join us this week for our fantastic challenge.
