Welcome to the Neighborhood

This is my first Guest Design Team card for Fitztown Challenge Blog.  They are having a DT call now through June 1.   Those accepted get a nine week trial in which they design up to six cards.  After eight weeks a decision is made as to permanent status.  Wish me luck!

The challenge this week is Lots of Layers.  I had a different idea that I was anxious to try.  I printed out four images and was planning to cut them up and apply them in layers.  I was excited about trying it.  Unfortunately, a few of my brown markers were drying out. I knew I'd never have enough ink to finish all the layers.   I decided to go with one layer and lots of cardstock layers.  Maybe next time. The leaf border was cut with the Silhouette.

This adorable image from Fitztown is available here.  
I used Copics to color it.  The list of colors was pretty extensive.

Copics:  B14, B23, B41, BV02, C0, CQ, C2, C3, C4,  
 E23, E25, E29, E33, E34, E35, E37, G20, G21, G24, G28,
 R14, R20, R22, R24, Y13, Y17, YG01, YG93, YG95, YG07

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

I tested every one of my markers to see which ones were beginning to dry out and ordered about 15 refill bottles.  Dick Blick Art Materials has them for a pretty reasonable price.  The markers are 5.24 and the refills are 6.29.  That's pretty reasonable compared to other places I've priced them and I only paid 2.00 for shipping!
