Mod Squad Challenge - Song Inpsiration

I look for inspiration all of the time and when you look, you find it often.  Recent events in our family have made me realize that life is short ,and we need more Kindness and Joy.  I love the song by Tim McGraw called Humble and Kind.  The words are an inspiration to me, and that was how I did this card and it also inspired the Challenge at the Mod Squad this week.  I will be excited to see what you so with this one.
I die cut the word HUGS, a Die-namics die, three times. Then used the smallest stamp from the set by Power Poppy ( our sponsor this week) Called Sage Advice.  Great name! 

                       Then I used my copic markers to color in the flowers.
Next I stamped the image you see here, and used a ton of different Copic markers to color it.
E 11,15, 40   G 12,21,24,40,43  YG3,  YR12,15,23,24  Y23  R5
For my card, I used a die from Lil'Inkers tags, to cut out the colored image.
The Lil'Inkers stitched circle was used for the sentiment. It is heat embossed with gold.

 This is a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 inch white card base from GKD heavy card stock.  The patterned paper is Graphic 45 Artisan Style.  Sponged a bit of Antique Linen Distressed ink at the bottom of the image.
After adding some ribbon, I used foam tabs to attached the word HUGS!  I love how this turned out. 

Thanks for stopping by, I love your comments!  Now, go and create something that inspires you.
