Sweet Pea "It's My Birthday"

Good evening! I hope everyone has had a great Saturday afternoon. I have spent lots of time with my Copics and in my craft room today and minimal time doing laundry, so it has been a good day!! I colored several images last night and this morning and then this afternoon challenged myself to make cards using my stack of colored images. I am loving these Sweet Pea images more and more every time I color them. I decided to go with a pink and purple color combo here on the image. Then as I was going through my three trillion pieces of paper, I realized that I have no DP with deep purple in it! My image was colored with Copics, Atyou Spicas and a Stardust pen. The purple panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the flowers and brads came from Jo-Ann's.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my hubby is taking me out for sushi tonight!

Stunning colors and what a wonderful job you did coloring this image also. With an image like that who needs DP. The embossed background was a great choice.

Egads on two points . . . I need to change a load of laundry and wow girl, you do an amazing job with those copics! I cannot eat pizza due to my celiac, but if ever I knew the world would end, the day before I will eat an entire deep dish pizza all by myself.
