Spoon Full of Sugar - Best Wishes/Good Luck

Today's Spoon Full of Sugar is for Best Wishes a Good Luck project. Great timing as I needed a Best Wishes card for a friend :0) And one of my favorite images to use for Good Wishes or Thinking of you .. is Stampavie's Tina Wenke Mouse in a Teacup - I just love this image!! Fun to color and too adorable.

I tried to do a bit lighter coloring with my Copics. I tend to be a "heavy colorer" (.... I know that isn't a word, but hey it works here... )  So I tried to go lighter in colors and use of ink. Was tough, but I like it... and it still ended up a bit more than I was going for.

For my card I pulled out DCWV Linen Closet stack, love this collection, so pretty - and has a touch of sparkle. I layered and then cut into the scallops of one of the patterns in order to slip another layer behind. I sewed everything together. I cut my image with my oval Nesties, and then matted with another pattern cut with the scallop nesties.  I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment Best Wishes across the bottom... a bit "black" I wish I had tried a different color, but it was all put together so it was what it was. I added three small white pearl buttons to the top corner. Simple but I like it.

Now you can visit A Spoon Full of Sugar and see all the DT Best Wishes and Good Luck cards - too cute and too pretty! And then join us for the challenge and the prizes!

HUGS and -
