Markers on the go

Happy 4th of July!
Hope you have a fantastic day if you're celebrating the holiday.  :-)
Don't forget that today is the last day for you to enter my Mo birthday candy giveaway.

     Copic Marker Europe is celebrating its first birthday.  They have been giving away some great candy and they have also offered a Sylvia Zet digi as well as the Saturated Canary image I've used on this card as freebies with the stipulation that you must create a card for their challenge with them.  Well it's certainly no hardship for me to use a SC image.  LOL  This one is called "Traveling Colors".
     I've kept the card pretty CAS cause I didn't want to cover up that great patterned paper.  The fun sentiment is another one of Paulette's genius creations from Create with TLC.
     If you haven't checked out the Copic Marker Europe blog and you're a fan of Copic markers, I strongly urge you to go take a look.  They've got some awesome tips and techniques on there.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Copic Marker Europe--happy birthday celebration challenge
Bearly Mine--ribbons and bows
Papertake Weekly--anything goes
Totally Stampalicious--bows and ribbon
Just Some Lines--CAS
Totally Gorjuss--sweet and simple
Totally Papercrafts--use a digi
Crafty Ribbons--CAS

     Be blessed!

Awesome card Tracy & the perfect sentiment for the image! I don't own Copics...just can't afford them! I have a question for you....what size cards do you make & what size do you print your images? I never seem to have room on my cards to do the "blingy" stuff.
Hugs, Renee
