Hello! I made this card for this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge. The challenge theme is "Add Lace." The Ribbon Resource sent me this beautiful lace ribbon to use. It came in white so I used my Copic marker to color it to match my card. It was so easy to color. I rinse the excess color out and used my heat tool to quickly dry it.

I stamped the bird and pitcher and the butterfly onto heavy weight cardstock and used Copic markers to color them in. I didn't have a brownish shade so I dipped the tip of the yellow into a dark brown marker to color the bird. I then fussy cut the images out and used 3D tape to place them onto the white die cut shape. The background was created using Kuretake Clean Color markers. The Hello sentiment was a die from Penny Black.
