Compose a card with Becky and Papertrey Pals Challenge

This weeks card is for Becky's challenge found HERE and for the Papertrey Pals challenge found HERE. So this is my first time using Copic markers .... hello there is going to be a major learning curve here ....... who wants to come over for one on one training ..... good food, excellent desserts if you like ....... you name it!!!

In addition to this card being a challenge it was also a challenge to get it done for my friends birthday. You all know I have more stories than Disney and of course this is no different. Monday started with Emma being sick continuing on to Ava and Anton and now Curt YIKES!!!! I know with all this crying that I am doing call me a Waaaambulance and let them know when they get here I will be the one hanging out the window :) Obviously my June Cleaver look of the pearls, freshly spritzed face and a cute PTI ribbon in my hair is not happening right now. Thankfully I have not lost my sense of humor!!!



So here is my take on the little honey wearing the brown dress ...... my card in NO WAY does her justice she looks like a real peach of a young lady!!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

Sue Ann, this is gorgeous! What are the little circles on the white paper, are they a PTI stamp?

Dana said...

Oh Sue Ann you crack me up! Where do I sign up for one-on-one with desserts? LOL. I'm sorry it's been such a hard week with the kiddos...no fun I know.
Your card IS lovely. The tiny green dots in the center of the circles is the best BG ever! Your stitching is so perfect ooo. how do you do it with such a steady hand? Love those large scallops too, so perfect with the tiny printed paper. And lets talk about your coloring...AWESOME! I can't believe you cut that whole flower out!

Gorgeous card Sue Ann! You did great with copics... no need to be stressed! Although I am not one to talk, I have yet to take the copics plunge. Nice job though!

Oh my Gosh, this is soooo pretty! I absolutely love all patterns of paper.Your coloring is awesome.I'm also just beginning to use Copics. I really enjoy them. I need to ink up this stamp set!!

Tsk tsk! Would June cave under that kind of pressure? I think not! I think she'd tighten up her pearls til she was blue in the face first! :) Cute card, I don't think you need copic lessons, in fact, if you promise dessert, I'll come on over and take lessons from you!

Sue Ann, this is so clever! I love that background... it REALLY makes me want to look at the focal flower and yet is subtle. Wonderful work!
