Happy St. Paddy's Day and Another New Card

Good morning, ya'll!  If you have been following my blog from the beginning, you'll remember the 3 variations of cards I made using the same stamped image.  If not, you can find them here.  I stated in that post that I had colored about a dozen copies of that image after I got my Copic markers so I could experiment with all the beautiful colors and to practice my technique as I have had no training in how to use them.  Here is another variation of that same rose.  I have been building up my card stash and making items to enter into some of the cool challenges I have found all around Blogland.  I still have 2 or 3 more roses to do something with but I promise the next card will use a different image! LOL


The first 3 cards were relatively simple in design and used softer, more muted colors, whereas lately I have been using more bright and bold colors and more complicated designs.  I think my psyche was longing for springtime and so I have been leaning more toward the warm side of the spectrum.  The main colors on this card are yellow, peachy orange and pink.  The inside sentiment says "Life is Special with Friends like You".





I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Little Claire's - flowers
One Stitch At A Time - glitter and gems
Cupcake Crafts Challenges - Up in the air ( my butterfly)
Stamp-n-Doodle - 2 "G" embellishments (mine are gems, glitter and garden)
Flourishes - Butterflies
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Triple Tastic (3 yellow and pink blossoms & 3 patterned paper panels)
My Grafico Crafts - anything goes
Catered Crop  - Top Chef Quick Fire (the ingredients I used were: Spring pastel colors, flower stamp, Copic markers, flower embellishments and circle shape.  The spices I added were ribbon, brads, and a butterfly).
Scrapbook Sisters - Card Challenge #27 - Spring flowers


Thanks so much for looking!
