Flower Card

This card is made from a pattern I copied from Taylors blog a few months back when she created the pattern and posted it so everyone could download it . The green CS is DCWV textured , unsure at the moment of the maker of the DP , also used were Marvy scallop circle and SU scallop circle , the flower in the center is Heidi Grace and the white brad was colored with a Copic marker as well as the shading on the leaves and stem . A marker was used to put the doo dads on the scallop circle .
Have a great Tuesday and feel free to sign my guestbook at the bottom of the page !

On Friday April 11th , I had the opportunity to ride to Eugene Oregon with friends Roseanne and Ilene and take the Copic Certification class with them , also there were Cambria , Nancy Morgan , Joy(Joy of Stamping) , Kim (Stampingspud from Idaho) , and a few others I don't remember the names of . It was so cool to meet these awesome gals ! It was great fun and we learned lots from Marianne of Copic . Check their website or contact Marianne (click on education or contact button) for a class near you , it is so worth it !
Now all I need to do is save some money so I can invest in some of these awesome markers . I was totally impressed with them , there is nothing else out there quite like them , I would highly recommend them !
Here are a few of the pics I took at the class .

This one is Stampingspud(Kim) and Cambria , not sure of the other gals name . Sorry this one is a little fuzzy !

Natural Beauty

This is a card I made for a Natural Beauty swap I was in a while back , this one is sort of similar to one I have posted here several months ago , but the layout is a quite a bit different on this one . It is made using Stampin Up's Natural Beauty set and last years in colors . It is hard to see but on the bottom and top of the card has been paper pierced .
Thanks for stopping by !
