Salvaged Card

  Really?  I was considering entering this?  Oh, come on!  What was I thinking?
  e flowers and leaves. Now this is more like it.  I'm sure I can do better though.  It is after 12:30am and I'm getting pooped!  Maybe I should wait til tomorrow and tweak it and see what I think then?  I'm sure she'd look nice with some flowers and some leaves
   I was inspired by Bren today to do a Copic Journal.  I am excited to get it started and I know exactly what papers I'm going to use.  Prima.  I picked them up in South Carolina when I took an Intermediate class from Suzanne J. Dean.  I have already taken an Intermediate class from Copics but decided to take one from Suzanne too.  Boy am I glad I did.  I've noticed that Copic doesn't like to give you a formula so to speak, but Suzanne will give you what she has tried and i like that.  I think it gives you an opportunity to try her formula and be able to tweak it if you will to fit your style. I don't like the guess work, but that is just me.  I want to see what has worked for others and see if I can't change it up a bit and make it my own.
  Well, I think that is all for now,


  1. Beauitful job with all the wonderful folds. Love the colors. You did a great job on you card. Thanks for joining us at Color Me Creative Classroom Challenge. I love seeing all your creations. Good luck on the challenge.

  2. Great job on both cards Carolyn! I actually like the first one.. really! It looks like she's sitting under the stars waiting for the fireworks to begin :)
    Thanks for joining our Airbrush challenge at icopic!

  3. Carolyn, thank you so much for your comments about my Copic Journal!! So glad that you like it and I can't wait to see yours. Now I love both these cards. Funny thing, this is the exact paper that I couldn't find for the card I did this week for our stars and stripes challenge. (I lost it on my desk or somewhere in my craftroom! LOL) I honestly don't know which one I like better, but when I am like that I leave it alone and come back and look at it in the morning! Will have to check back to see if it found some flowers!!! Hugs~Bren
