Mad For Markers - New Challenge - Pink and Yellow

Hi there Copic fans!!
Can you believe it is Thursday again already?! Now that we are in to July it's like a down hill run, I'm sure the days are just going faster!

I'm here today with a card to share with you that will hopefully get you all inspired to take part in the current challenge over at Mad For Markers.

We want to see your pretty PINK AND YELLOW creations.

Sammi is offering a couple of Copic Markers to the winning entry ( Pink and Yellow of course!)

For my card I have used a fabulous image from Kenny K called Download Diva.

I'm loving the pale pink and yellow but gee, it was tough to photograph! It really does look so much better in real life.

Stunning card love your colours thanks for playing at Divas hugs Rebekah xx


Fabulous image Michelle, and such pretty pastel colours. Love the layout and those beautiful crochet flowers. Your photograph looks absolutely fine to me! I find that it almost takes longer to get a decent photo of a card, than it does to make it!
