It's here...!

It's here and I am super stoked!  The 30 Day Coloring Challenge!  Haven't heard about it?  You've got to check out Kathy's daily blog here.  I really enjoyed the last time I took the challenge- granted I didn't color every day for 30 days, but I did get quite a bit of coloring done.   All the challenge "rules" are on her blog and I use the word "rules" lightly- you do what you need to do.  I liked this challenge because A.) It forced me to carve out time in my day to do what I love (it was like there was a little Copic marker on my shoulder reminding me that the challenge was in effect) and B.) I really did get quite a few images colored and now when I need to create a card I can just go pull an image- sweet right?

I'm going to lead off with this card that I made- With Sympathy.  Aughhh, I hate making sympathy cards, but they are essential and I never seem to have one on hand when I need it, SOOOO I whipped up three of them!  The digital image is from Sandy Allnock's digital image series called EduDigi- you can find that here.  She actually has them ON SALE (use code 30DAY2)!!!  Totally worth it- you thought you knew everything about Copic markers?  Been coloring awhile and aren't sure it is for you?  WRONG!  It's totally worth it!

These flowers are really beautiful and the layout on this card has been kept quite simple.

Copics Used:
Flower (inside) Y2,6,17,V25
Flower (outside) Y2,8,BV01
Stems YG95,G99
Flower Pot E35,39,18

I'd like to enter this into the following challenge:
