Sun, Moon, and Rainbow - Love You All the Time

Like last week's card, a three-window card on a green base.  And otherwise, not a a bit like last week.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Neenah solar white (sentiment) and Papertrey Ink new leaf (green) and true black.
  • The die is Papertrey Ink take three.  I also used a 1/4" Corner Chomper to round all the corners, except for the top of the green card base. 
  • The sentiment "Love you, all the time" is computer-printed in "Hobo std medium" font (outline, expanded)  in black ink. 
  • At first, I drew the sun, rainbow, and moon images in black ink.  My drawing was nice, but it didn't scan well, so I recreated it with PowerPoint shapes.  
  • I used Copic markers for my coloring: B01, B26, V04, V22, G14+YG04 (colored on top of each other to match the green card stock), Y15, Y21, Y26, YR07, and R08.
  • The embroidery floss (left to right) is DMC 721, a very old unknown blue, Anchor 108, DMC 347, and DMC 725.
