Today's card isn't flat enough to mail without extra postage, so I'll put it in my "special cards for special people" pile and mail it with a package.  I used a new stamp set today -- one called "Grace" by Our Daily Bread Designs, and I made the card for this week's Shining the Light inspiration challenge.  I decided to use the colors from pictures 1 and 2.   I colored my image with copics and then added a little prismacolor pencil to the top.


To tone down the white paper I had stamped my image on, I colored it with YR000 and then went around the edges with E41.  This helped it to blend with the ivory base layer and helped the flowers to "pop" off the page a little. : )
