It's Your Birthday!

UPDATE: this card received a shout out over at Papertrey Ink...Thanks PTI!

I have taken the plunge!!!!
...yes! ...into the colorful world of Copics!
 ...and I am loving it!

Over the weekend , I got my first set of Copics, I decided to start small and picked up a set of 6 from my local craft store. I can't stop playing with them , am sure you will see more of them on my cards in my upcoming posts.

For today I have a card following the sketch shared on  the Make It Monday # 69 video by PTI. I am not a huge fan of sketches , since it kind of limits my thinking process and forces me to stay within the lines , but this morning after I watched the video I thought of taking this as a challenge and pushed myself out of my comfort zone and came up with this....

 Sharing with Lawnscaping Challenge#35-Patterned paper

 My very first attempt at using the Copic fancy shading here..just simple coloring

 Another first -used some bling!

Supplies: White cardstock, Stamps - PTI sentiments, Flower- MS, Die- Half and Half-PTI , Copics, rhinestones, Patterned paper- Lawn Fawn- Bright Side.

The bling and the gold glitter makes it perfect for CAS-ual Fridays latest challenge- Put a Bling On It

Thanks for stopping by.
