Friday Sketchers Stamp Something for Kaboodle with Mo's Digital Pencil

I recently acquired a new photocorner die by Marianne Createables and knew I wanted to use it as soon as I saw the great "sketch" at Friday Sketchers this week.  Kaboodle want us to make it "Monochromatic" and it's "Digi Day" at Stamp Something.
Mo's Digital Pencil want to see "Lots of Love - with buttons lace and bows" and just to prove that they are all there here is a closeup.
I opted for a Higher kind of Love with Mo's absolutely delightful "Joy" image of three nuns. Don't they just look like they are full of love?
Yesterday I struggled to colour hair on my new Sugar Nellie stamp. Let me tell you - that was easy peasy lemon squeezy in comparison to trying to colour folds in nuns' habits but I'm pleased with the result especially with the nun on the left.   I used Copics to colour my image which is mounted on my latest Nestie.  The DP is Stampin Up and the sentiment is Word Processed.   Inside the card it actually says "Celebrate your birthday".   The sketch called for some embellishment at about the 2 and 8 O'clock positions on the image circle but that just didn't work with the image.  So I piled them on the little bit of lace.  In my mind, this image is so stunning, the card requires very little embellishment. 
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
