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!
DON'T FORGET TO BECOME A FOLLOWER AND LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS POST OR ANY POST THIS WEEK FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A SET OF CRI-KITS.COM PENS AND THE CUSTOM PEN HOLDER! PLEASE READ MONDAY'S POST HERE FOR COMPLETE DETAILS!

Leaving my second post in hoping to win those awesome pens. Wouldn't have a clue how to use them but I guess that is what reading your blog is for.

Chris said...

Great card. I cannot color like that even on a good day.

Just as everyone has already said, beautiful card -- what is the background paper that you used?

Also, what carts did you use?

Now a follower! Love your blog!

Paula said...

Love the card one day I will try the copics just scared if I love them I will want them all

SandyK said...

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.
