The BIG 2-1 !

      Okay, I'm officially hooked on Saturated Canary!  LOL  If you are too, or even if you haven't tried these yet, make sure you check out my candy giveaway so you can get hooked too!  Mwahahaha
     Now I told you yesterday that my baby girl, my only child, was turning 21.  I'm sure you can guess by the card what her favorite color is.  :-)  This is definitely an explosion in pink, but it's so her and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  Of course the image is Saturated Canary.  I couldn't resist putting a few in my basket when I was purchasing the gift certificate from Krista's store.  Can't wait to color those up too!
     I used Copics and a little bit of Prisma pencils.  There's lots of gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers and a border die cut that I covered in chunky pink glitter.  The top right corner looked a bit bare so I decided to do a little bit of lacing up there.  Those little pink eyelets are one of the few finds I found at that scrapping clearance store I visited while in Florida.
     You all know that I rarely finish insides, but I did on this one---and almost messed it up!  When I signed it the pen didn't write evenly so I tried to trace back over my writing.  Should have left it alone.  grrrr
     It's raining cats and dogs here so I imagine I'll be doing some crafting .....or sleeping!  LOL
