Birthday Botanical Dreams


This is a belated birthday card for my good friend Kathie. She's a precious friend who always thinks of others. She's more like a sister than a friend...Happy Birthday Kathie!

I used Gina K.'s "Botanical Dreams,"designed by Asela Hopkins. It was great fun coloring this image with my Copics...there are other beautiful images included in Asela's set as well.

I love this new designer paper from Stampin' Up as well. The colors and prints are just beautiful!

I almost always exclusively Copic color my images stamped on PaperTrey Ink papers. They're a perfect weight and allow the Copics to shine! Colors are vibrant and true. I use Adirondack inks for Copic coloring and do not take the time to heat set the image before beginning--I have not experienced any problems with smearing. Nestabilites and a corner rounder punch helped me finish off this very simple card.

Thanks for stopping by!
