I promise...

...this is the last time I will use that flower at least for the this month :D

So, I told you in my last post that I wanted to play along LilyPad Cards Sketch Challenge and when I saw the Make It Monday#29-Free Style Copic coloring video, I immediately knew I wanted to give that coloring technique a try. This is also my second entry for Mel's Layering Challenge at Yvonne's Blog. Oh and, Did you see Lucy's Rainbow Challenge? I am all in for it :D


 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: PTI(Friends 'till the end);ink: Momento(Tuxedo Black); Coloring Medium: Faber Castell Markers

So I was in a up-cycling mood and found this sheet of corrugated cardboard from some packaging. I think it adds so much texture while layered on this card.  I also tried curving my sentiment for the first time and love how it looks. Here's how I interpreted the sketch: flower represents the oval and the leaves represent the small circles around and for the corners, I rolled them up :)

I hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
