A Little Mo Manning and Make it Crafty Love

Hello my blogging friends!  You've probably thought I  threw in the towel by now since it has been forever since I have posted anything, huh?  Well, I am still here!  Life just happened....you know family, teaching Copic classes, then the holidays came and it all became a big blur!  I promise with the New Year to be much better about posting my coloring even if I don't yet have them made into a card or project yet so you at least have something to look at!

So, without further adieu, I give you one of my favorite projects I created for my in-laws to give as a gift for their friends for a 50th wedding anniversary.  I used Mo Manning's (Mo's Digital Pencil) Soldier Boy and Shirley digi stamps and layered them in Photoshop Elements with Make it Crafty's Tree of Love digi stamp to create the scene.  I also added in the initials of the couple on the tree to personalize it for the recipient.

On the inside I added a string of pearls and shear ribbon to accent the center.

Here is the Boxelope I created for the card to be presented in. I added a chipboard key that I covered in white crackle paint, added a WOC rose, some pearls and a tag to finish off the shear white bow.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and reading through this long post.  Hope to see you again soon!  
Big Copic Hugs!
