My new little boy stamps arrived from LOTV and in between doing the laundry I've managed to make a couple of cards to share with you - here is the first one. It's another C6 simple design for the Marie Curie charity with more of the freebie magazine papers, a piece of satin dark blue ribbon to hide the join and matting with soft suede cardstock from Stampin' Up! To embellish I've stamped the LOTV circular greeting and punched golden stars that I fixed with foam pads to give a little extra dimension and interest. Today I remembered to make a note of the Copic pens I used to colour the image and the greeting:

skintones: E000, 00, 21
hair and teddy: E11, 33, 35
blues: B91, 93, 95, 97, 99
greens: YG93, 95, 97, G99
socks and book pages: E40, 41, 43
moon and stars: Y13, 15 and Spica gold pen
shadows: W0, 1, 2, 3, 5

The Sweet Stampin' challenge is either a sketch, or to use spots, stripes and sparkle - I've gone for the latter.

I'll schedule my card for tomorrow as I'm back to Mum & Dad's for the day.
