Good evening all,
So sorry this is so late today! Boy...what a day! :-) I will be glad to start again tomorrow :-)
The Word says: Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. LAM. 3:22-23

Here is the project I completed for today.
It was really easy to put together. I used the Cri-Kits metallic and glitter pens to "Draw" the Sunflower and the Birthday greeting.

Here is a view of the card.
Here is an angled view to show that I pop dotted the "drawing" to give the card some extra dimension.
Here is a closeup of the flower. I wanted to show how the inside has a bunch of tiny cirlces. When I colored it in with my Copics, it ended up adding this really neat "texture" look to it. Please ignore my coloring, it sure wasn't my finest...lol!

  27. Great Card, The cri kit pens really made the flower stand out. I also think you did a great job with the copics. I'm just getting into watercolor pencils-afraid I'd fall in love with the copics and they are a bit to pricey for me at this time. I'd love to win the cri kits. Thanks for the chance to win.
