Special Thanks...

It's been so slow for my to get back into making cards. The kids have been back to school for a week now, so finally I found some quiet time to make this card...which is going to someone that I won awesome candy from awhile back. I'm not mentioning her name here, cause I wanna surprise her! But she is super talented and so inspirational!
I tried quite a few new techniques here. First I followed a fantastic tutorial from Color me Copic, made by the one and only Amy Young, on coloring curly hair. All I can say is she makes it look so easy, but I defninitely need to practice ALOT more! I also "tried to" distress the edges...didn't look like it made much difference. Lastly, I used some fabulous Shimmerz on the flowers...think I need more colors now! hehee! Oh..and I followed one of the FFF sketch by Mercy!

Challenges:
Color Me Copic - Challenge #3 Curly Hair
Karber - Thank You
YNS - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by! ;)
