Here's the first card. I went round and round with the embellishments on this and still am not 100% happy but it's finished.
The image is my newest Sarah Kay stamp purchase. I've watercolored it and yes, I know those of you who know I recently purchased a set of Copic marker are wondering when I'm going to use the darned things. Well . . . I have been using them, but I'm not comfortable with them yet, not pleased with what I've done so far, and frankly don't have the right kind of paper to color on (that's on it's way as I type). All the tutorials make it look so easy, but I'm a little intimidated with them. I'm more comfortable with the watercolor so I keep going back to it.
Here are the challenges I'm going to enter this card into:
