 Hello everyone... long time no blog, hey?  It's good to be back!

Today I've got a card for this week's Make it Monday challenge from Papertrey Ink.  The challenge was to color with copics on non-neutral cardstock, which is my favorite way to color with copics.  My crafting time is seriously limited and I want to make the most of it so sitting down to spend an hour coloring isn't feasible, but adding shading here and there is.

This card was made for my cousin's birthday.  She's one of my best friends and like a sister to me, we grew up down the street from each other, got into plenty of trouble and have countless childhood memories to make us laugh.  Love that girl :)

The rose, from year of flowers:roses, was stamped in smokey shadow ink on sweet blush cardstock.  Background basics:sheet music was stamped in sweet blush over it.  Then I shaded with my copics and cut it out.  It doesn't show up very well in the picture but I used a sakura glitter pen to trace the rose outline, it's so seriously gorgeous in real life.

This bookmark was another part of her b-day gift.   Since I gave her a book, she had to have an accompanying bookmark, right?

Well that's all I've got for today, thanks for stopping by!
