Fabulous sister

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Fab'n' Funky, the theme for this fortnight is 


 chosen by our lovely Pat who is hosting this time.

February is the month of sister's birthdays for me...both my sisters have their birthdays in February- on consecutive days too! My baby sister will be 50...not that anyone would believe it- she looks about 30!

I made this card for her using a lovely Mo Manning image, Eliza, chosen because she resembles my sister. I've used Copic Markers to colour and paper- pieced her dress. The background is lightly sponged with Distress Ink and I've added a little stencilling. 

The inside panel is coloured using the same ink and stencils, I stamped and embossed the large 'Fabulous' and added the die cut '50'. 

Please check out the Challenge Blog, you'll find some great inspiration from my talented teamies and we'd love to have you join in this fortnight.

Thanks for stopping by

Super card for your sister. Paper piecing looks great. Thanks for reminding me of Mo manning images. I have quite a few and have just been over and found the perfect one for my sister, my son and my granddaughter who all have birthdays coming up shortly. Time for some colouring methinks. Hugs Mrs A.
