It takes me ages to put a card together! I decide on what image I want to use then think about colours so go through my papers (no mean feat as I'm sure you will agree! lol) once I've chosen then I need to sort the colours of my copics to tie in and what design the card is going to take. Once I've decided on all that it tends to come together reasonably quickly just have to work out the embellishments! Now you may wonder why I have rambled on a bit here but this card which uses the fantastic Birthday Girl 1 digi stamp from Mad For Markers, looks very simple but it actually took me hours! I kept swapping papers around then umming and ahhing over design, need I go on but the finished card looks so clean and simple and looks like it could have been made in minutes! Am I really the only one this happens too? Anyway I have used copics E00, 11, 47,49 & 57 V000, 12, 15 & 17 YG03 &23 then added a little touch of sakura stardust, my papers are First Editions Daydream pad and then added 2 different ribbons and a little charm from my stash and a stamped sentiment.
