Good morning!  Well this is a quick post as I am running late...oh well Saturday ever get here!  Actually, I will have no reprieve on Saturday either-off to work.  I really hate quarter end, haha.  Sunday morning we have the Pinewood Derby race to attend so no sleeping in Sunday either.

My card today was a quite a challenge for me.  This is the first time using my copics to color black objects.  I was lacking one shade that I think would have improved the over all look- it's on my wish list now.  After it was all colored I still found it a little flat looking so I coated (couple of coats) with diamond glaze to give it a little shine. Not bad.


Supplies Used:  Copic & Stampin Up markers
Cardstock-Stampin Up
Dp- Heidi Grace Designs
Ribbon, Sticker Sentiment
Black rose & leaf- Wild Orchid
Image is from Sassy Studio Designs

There you have it.  I happy with the layout but will need to practice coloring in black.  What do you think of that black rose!?  Isn't it gorgeous.  My order came this week and I have a beautiful load of flowers, yeah!
I love all the Alice in Wonderland images that are popping up and Sassy has some really cute ones.

Ok now for the challenges- I've got a few I am covering with this one.
