This challenge, to make a center step card, was so fun!!! This is the first I've made one. I had this image colored for 2 weeks but didn't have a chance to make a card with it. I used some Basic Grey paper on kraft card stock. The color choice was from a photo inspiration Flourishes challenge 2 week ago. I colored it with copics then cut is out with spellbinders dies. Gonna keep this short! Have a good week.

Guess what? My Grandmother is 100 years old tomorrow!
Can you imagine? I made this card with her in mind but I'm not sure I can part with it! It took hours (mainly because I couldn't decide which of the pretty "Pink Paisley" papers to use) and is so pretty IRL....
I used the Lilac set which I won in the scavenger hunt on the Flourish Blog months ago and I hadn't inked it up yet. Love it! I colored it with the Copics below, cut it with an oval spellbinder. I loosely followed a mojo monday sketch from 2010. I
Question for you, for all that have one, do you think the Copic Air Brush System is worth having? I got one for Xmas but I may return it. It seems like alot of trouble. What do you think? I sponged the ink on the above oval. I think you would have to mask every image you color to airbrush it but not sure.
I'm also entering this is a few challenges.

Hi everybody, welcome to 2012! Time to put away the holiday decorations and start playing in some challenges! I decided to combine some challenges for this card, mainly focusing on the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 150. The challenge is to make a tri-fold card using a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. It was fun and challenging since I've never made one like this. I had to line up the floral image, Fuchsias in Bloom to be viewed in the circle.
And I had to line up and cut the doily on the front too.
I used my coral and reds to match the challenge and the papers. Link to colourq-challenge-118
This card also fits the Shabby Tea Room challenge #95 this week, a photo challenge with a twist, add something with wings!
