BBTB2 Challenge-Thanksgiving Cart

Good Morning our BBTB2 Challenge today was to use the word "Thank" from the Thanksgiving cart, I chose to use the "Thankful Heart". Our Challenge is hosted by the marvelous Donna M today.  This is a 6"x6" card.  So much of my work lately has been experimental as I acclimate myself to the "Imagine", it adds an edge of excitement because to be perfectly honest sometimes I have no idea what will come of a project.  When I printed and cut the focal piece (the "Meow" girl) from "Best Friends" Imagine cart the only thing I was sure of was that I did not like the lighter highlighting around her and I did not want "Meow" on her T-shirt.  I was hoping with fingers crossed that the Copic markers would take care of those two issues and they DID.  Here are the colors I used:  B18;B97;E07;E53;R20 and 110.  I gave her wonderful puffy cheeks a bit of blush and highlighted with some white and added a gem to her hair bow. She has been cut twice and used a pop up to give some dimension.  The background papers were printed from "Best Friends" and "Imagine More".  EKSuccess for the photo corners, the leaves were punched from a Martha Stewart punch and then distressed, some were embossed and all were stamped with a leaf stamp to give veining. The small heart on her T-shirt is a QK die.
Lastly I would like to share some of the things I am Thankful for this year, I am thankful for friends near and far, I am thankful for my health and health of my loved ones.  I am thankful to be an American, God Bless our Home.  I am so thankful for my blog and the opportunity to share and to be inspired by so many talented men and women.  Bless each of you and thanks for visiting here, leaving comments and being you. Hugs and Happy Monday, Sandi

What a FUN card, Sandi! Lovin' the colors and what a great job on hiding the outline. My favorite element are those little leaves with all the extra added detail.

Fabulous card, Sandi. I've been trying to get used to my Imagine too. Leave it to you to point out using the Copics along with the image. You're a genius! Thanks, friend. Hugs

ps...if you can hide cuts with the Gypsy...couldn't you hide the little printed parts with it too? Like the meow on her shirt? Worth a look into I would think. Hugs!!
