Phindy's Place Friday - 1,2,3 Challenge

Good morning everyone, Happy Friday!  For us here in the U.S.  it is going to be a long weekend in honor of Memorial Day.  On Monday we will honor all the men and women who have fought and died in order to protect our freedoms that we take for granted every day.  I can't imagine making the choice to put yourself in harms way, but I know that if they hadn't our lives could be very different than they are now.  I just want to say THANK YOU to all of these courageous people for making that choice and want to take a moment to honor their memory.

On a different note I am a very proud mama today.  My daughter got an award yesterday at school and we are all very proud of her!  We had homemade milkshakes last night to celebrate as they are her absolute favorite!  Of course we are going to frame and hang her award as we see it as a great accomplishment!

Now onto the challenge at Phindy's Place this week.  Our challenge is a 1,2,3 challenge, 1 image, 2 DP's and 3 embellishments.  Many of us often have a difficult time with these challenges, especially the three embellishments.  For my three embellishments I chose to use 3 types of embellishments, not just 3 embellishments only.  It is all up to your interpretation as long as it follows the 1,2,3 guidelines that have been set.  Don't forget, if you use a Phindy's Place image you get a second entry into our challenge for the random drawing at the end of the week.

For my project today I used the Phindy's Place image, Big Sister at Work.  I actually made this card for my mother on Mother's Day as it reminded me of my own son and daughter.

Materials I Used for this Project:
Copic Markers
Spellbinder's Nestabilities dies
Prima Flowers
Magnolia Doohickey die
Large Staples

Here's a close up of my colored image.
