Just Between Friends

This card is for the My Time to Craft Challenge:  Just Between Friends.  This lovely image came from A Day for Daisies.  I just haven't been able to work on cards lately.  I have been kind of overwhelmed and just find it very difficult to focus even when I do have time.  I decided it would be fun to make another easel card.  I really liked the first one I did. 

I colored it with Copics.  I was almost tempted to take my Distressed Inks back out and give them another try.  I figured my husband, sitting in the room watching television, would probably not be too happy with the inevitable colorful language I tend to use when I try to paint.  I decided to forgo the inks.

The paper is from Fairy Flora.  It really is a beautiful pack of papers.  The flowers and gold corner pieces are  from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I painted the flowers with glitter, although, the photo doesn't show it very well.

Copics:  B0000, B000, B00, B01, C0, C1, E00, E02, E13, E15, E17, E35, E51, E53, R11, R20, R22
