Fight Like a Girl

Today I am sharing with you a card I recently made for my grandmother.  She has been battling so much since the spring and she recently just spent another few days in the hospital.  I wanted to make her a special card and a freebie that I downloaded from the Saturated Canary Facebook page seemed like just the perfect one for the card.  The image is called Ribbons and her sentiment is "Fight Like a Girl".  

Now, I don't know about you but I think girls can be pretty tough when they want to be, at least the girls that I know.  I thought this would convey the message I wanted to send and what I have always felt about my grandmother.  She is one tough cookie and I wanted her to know that.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Fiskars Flower Punch
MS Double Border Punch
MS Frond Punch
Tea Dye Distress Ink
Glossy Accents

I am happy with the way the coloring of this image came out, probably because there isn't any hair.  I have been taking classes at Kit and Clowder and have seen an improvement in my coloring but I just struggle with hair.  Well, practice makes perfect and that is what I plan on doing.  Hopefully I will get down the technique she teaches because it is just awesome.  I have really learned a lot about lighting and find myself looking at the different types of lighting at various places in the community.

Well, one more official day of Summer vacation and then it is back to school and work.  Fall will be here and we will be in the swing of things before you know it!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
Thanks so much for dropping by,
