Remember to Smile - SSS#200 and WAW#70

Hello Delightful friends and family,
Hoping to get this in for the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge.  Congrats to Korin for her 200th sketch!  

 Here is my card, I've used a Saturated Canary digi image, Easter Dress (the first time ever coloring one of these beauties, hope I've done her justice.) I've only taken one beginning Copic class at our lss, and I'm so thankful for so many tutorials online plus I just bought the book "Copic Coloring Guide Level 3: People" by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker and it was so very helpful. Practice, practice, practice! Someday if certification is offered a bit closer to where I live perhaps I'll be able to do that.

The designer paper is Echo Park (For the Record 2), card stock Bazzill, Neenah; Sentiment: Greeting Farms; Inks: Memento ink, tuxedo black; Distress Inks, Worn lipstick,Antique lines, Frayed burlap, Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Scallop Oval and MFT Die-Namics Fishtale Flags STAX.  I've also used a piece of vellum that's distressed and the edges inked with the Frayed Burlap Distress ink.  
SSS#90 Here is a card that was one of my favorites using the Sweet Stop Sketches I used it way back in January 2011!

Okay, gotta quickly get this linked up!  I will also link this up at WORD ART WEDNESDAY - Anything Goes #70.  Have a blessed day.

Thanks for visiting!

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.   2 Cor. 2:14
