Happy Valentine's day! Today is February 14. I decided not use the card for MMSC #40 (see below) as my valentine's day card for DH. I wanted a more masculine card. I decided to try this upcoming week's sketch challenge (MMSC #41) for the layout. It took me all day to put this together. Mostly it took a long time to color the image and the sky. I actually dried out one of my copic markers (I am not sure what to do to refill it) as I made this. I didn't do the buttons as embellishments on the two corners as the buttons I have are too whimsical for the card. I thought the silver circle paper clip thingy was enough for the upper corner. I put the silver pearls on the bottom corner and off of the main image because I didn't want to hide my image. I pierced my paper on the green panel but felt it was a pain to do so I didn't do it on the gray panel. I used my silver gel pen to add the outlines to each of the two background panels.
