Friends of Speedy TV Challenge #19

Since Mother's Day is just around the corner our Challenge this
week at  Friends of Speedy TV is Mother's Day. Make a
card for your mom or a special lady in your life.

 The winner will receive this lovely Mother's Magnolia Set.

  Because my mom went thru a long siege of health issues as
 a result of complications of surgery this past winter I'm
 extra happy to celebrate this  day with her this year. This pocket
 card with a tag is for her. I have used the Dogwood Blossoms Set 
 today. This is my first try using copics and
it  certainly is different that using water colors! I can see it
 will take lots of practice plus I will need more shades of colors
. After coloring two of the dogwood images a
cut then out. For the pocket I used some scraps paper but there wasn't
 enough so I made a page of similar design with water colors. 
Used some lace around the edges of the pocket then  dotted the
edges and fastened it together. A piece cut out  embossed  and
distressed to go in the larger space then
 the ribbon wrapped around and attached. 

The image was attached onto that. A little butterfly was cut out 
with a Cherry Lynn die and lastly the sentiment attached.

 The top of the tag was punched with the Ms Scalloped
 lace punch, the bottom was embossed with a paisley folder, then
 I stitched around it. I  distressed the edges and the embossed
 area then added the button  and the image. My sweet
 mom will be able to use it as a bookmark as she is an avid
reader. On the back I wrote her a note letting her know
 how special she is to me!
Here is a pic of it put together.
