Just A Note...

It's Monday and I get to ease into the work week.  I worked on this card last night and finished it this morning.  For the sketch, I'm playing along with the I Spy Sketches Challenge #18 and the elements are part of the Repeat Impressions Designer Choice Challenge 523 where we need to have a Stamped Image, Embossing, and Diecut or Punch.

Card recipe
Papers - My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market Street, K&Company Que Sera Sera
Stamped Flowers - Inkadinkado Flashy Floral, Just A Note
Tim Holtz butterfly embossing folder and distressed folder for watering can
Tim Holtz distressed ink Victorian Violet and Black Soot
Spellbinders Petite Scallop circle and Circle punch
Cricut Stretch Your Imagination for watering can
Versafine black ink and acid free markers
Gems and pearl embellishments, buttons from stash and embroidery floss

This is the first time that I coloured an image.  I wanted to give it a try before I look into purchasing some Copics.    I can see how much fun it would be so it's time for me to look into tutorials on Copics.  If you have any suggestions, please leave me a comment!

Here is the sketch from I Spy Sketches, I made my design on the landscape.

Thanks for dropping by and I would love to hear your feedback on this card!
