Hi Coops,

Fabulous card ! I like the idea that you had to put only your character in colors. Very good and original idea ! Magnificent embellishments. Everything is perfect ! Bravo !

Thanks for joining us at Charisma Cardz on our 3rd birthday this week.

Hugs from France.
Catherine.

Linda said...

Love this card coops, esp the sugared edges x

Sarah said...

Hi ya, another fantastic card! Love that it's just the image in colours, really makes her pop off the screen.

Do you mind me asking, your skin tones colours - are they the blush to cinnamon ones you've listed? Only the ones I'm currently using end up a bit washed out, I think anyway!, and yours look so vibrant. I thought I might steal the look - if that's OK, of course!

Hi Coops!
I love your card. Super layout and the coloring is lovely. Since finding your blog I have now gone and ordered more Flexmarkers and Promarkers so i can get some of the coloring combinations that you do.
I hope to get them from England next week. Thank you once again for putting your colors on.
Thank you also for being a follower on my blog.
