Mojo Monday and the love birds

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a wonderful day!!

I made this card last night for the Mojo Monday sketch #80. What a beautiful sketch! I couldn't resist using the Love birds from the Digital Stamp Oasis with SU's beautiful designer paper "Bella Birds" I love that paper! I added some stickles to the pink stripes.

The image was printed on GP white110lb card stock. It is what I use most of the times because it prints perfectly, is inexpensive, and works great with copics and prisma color pencils, I have also used SU whisper white with digital images and am pretty happy with that too, but don't have as good results when using prismacolor pencils with SU card stock. This image was colored with copics and cut out using my creative memories oval cutting system. The scallop oval was done with oval nesties and big kick. The sentiment was a freeby I received from Funky Kits when I ordered my Sugar Nellies. The heart in the middle is a small stamp from an old SU stamp set (sorry, I can't think of the name of the set).
Recipe:
Stamps: digistamp "lovebirds on a branch" by DSO, sentiment by Funky Kits (freeby), heart by SU.
Paper: chocolate chip, GP white 110lb, bella birds DP (SU)
Ink: HP inkjet, chocolate chip
Accessories: copics, stickles, ribbon, eyelets, paper piercing

Thanks so much for looking, and don't forget to submit your card for the sketch challenge I posted here for your chance to win some "candy".

Ellie!

Fabulous card Ellie :-) Love the glitter, it looks just fab ! The image is gorgeous :-)

What's GP cardstock, I don t think mine's all that good, particularly with prisma's, they stay streaky on my card. I would like to order some good quality card from somewhere :-) !

This is SO cute! I've never tried to print out images...I'm afraid that the black ink from the printer will smear or bleed with using Copics. You don't have that problem?
