For today's card, I basically designed an entire card around the new "Can't Adult" saying because I love it so much.  Do you ever see a saying that just speaks to you?  Well, this one certainly did for me!  There are days I just don't feel like being an adult.

To make the card, I stamped a new image called Diane onto some XPressIt blending cardstock and colored her with some Copic markers.  I added just a little bit of a light blue Copic around the image to give her a little pop.

I was really happy that the latest release had some new Cover a Card backgrounds as well.  Whenever possible, I prefer to make my own "patterned paper" by stamping and layering my own designs.  For the background, I created a pattern using the new Splattered Cover a Card in grey pigment ink (Colorbox Chalk Grey Whale) and the new Scratched Cover a Card in blue pigment ink (Colorbox Chalk Azurite).

I just love that "can't adult" saying! I love how you did the background. I caught my eyes immediately. Your copic coloring is beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous card. Very adorable and I absolutely love the sentiment!!! It fits my oldest Daughter Desiree' to a tee!! She is always saying that she isn't grown up enough to be an adult and she is now 31. LOL!!!

I like how you make your own "patterned paper" . I try to do that too when I cannot find the perfect paper I need. My brain thinks of one design by my hands cannot find it, so I make it. Problem solved.
