Mother's Day for Aunt
It's time for the May 2019 Brown Sugar Monthly Challenge #290. This challenge begins on Friday, May 3, 2019, and runs through Tuesday, June 4, 2019. Our theme for May is Flowers! May also brings Mother's Day in several countries so this is the perfect time to create something special.
I enjoy honoring my Aunt Millie on Mother's Day. She is 91 and such a sweet lady! Because I will be mailing the card, I designed it to be low profile.
My image, Old Roses Frame, was provided by the challenge sponsor, Morgan's Art World.
I downloaded, resized and printed the image on Copic-friendly paper. I also turned it, using a different orientation from the artist's original. I inset the sentiment using my computer. After coloring with Copics, the image was fussy cut, adhered to a die cut fancy frame cut from a water colored scrap, backed with a panel of white cardstock and adhered to a gray card base. The green rhinestones were added. The inside was lined with white cardstock and decorated with more water colored paper.
Everyone is welcome to join the challenge - you could win a prize! Stop by the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog and play along with us.
