Debbie's Challenge Card

I started the card by coloring the digital image by Marla Shega with Copic markers,  then trimmed  with scissors.  One of the tricks I use when I cut out an image with scissors is to always leave some white even when I do not want to.  Then I carefully go around the outside cut edge with a black marker.  This will help to hide the white edges.
Next I stamped the Old Friends saying, Remember when Life was Simple, using black ink and cut it out using a round die cut.  Then I stamped the outer pink ring with pink ink and used a scalloped die to cut this out.  Then all I did was arrange the parts of the card.  

I used a doily that I got at a restaurant and taped it down. They had the hot drinks sitting on them so I asked if I could have some.  You never know where you can pick up some fun stuff!  

Next I added the Heart Within My Heart die cut.  This is an awesome die cut. I just know you will love it!  This I chose to glue down.  Make sure you choose glue that dries clear. The next layer was the  digital image and the saying.  The finishing touch was adding the rose in the corner.
