Treasure The Moment, Copic Creations Challenge #11

I am officially back to school and the kids are wonderful this year just like many other years. I guess because it is just about Labor Day I decided this would be my last "summer" card. I am so ready to move onto Fall. I didn't want to save this cute High Hopes stamp though till next year.

I made this card for the Copic Creations #11 challenge, use your favorite color combos. Mine happen to be Earthy browns, pinks, purples and shades of green when it comes to Copics. I love all the Copic colors but don't always have combos that I like together. The DT cards are gorgeous like always and the Sponsor is Mo's Digital Pencil Too. The images are so cute with lots of beautiful details.

I didn't do a lot of extras on this card, I thought the image was detailed enough. I did pop up the flower to give the impression of an umbrella and added the floating leaves after to balance the card out. The saying seemed fitting because we'll be knee deep in snow before we know it longing for a summer day again!

Stamps: High Hopes, PSX, Stampin' Up
Paper: SU Bashful Blue, Orchid Opulence, Papertrey White, and DP Basic Grey, Magenta
Ink: Bashful Blue, Memento Black and Copics
Accessories: Nesties, Twine and Beads from JoAnns

I hope you enjoyed this card. I really appreciate you stopping by and letting me know what you think of my creations.

Have a wonderful day,
