MDUC #122

"So Sentimental"

Ok so how shocked and disappointed was I when I found out what the challenge was for Magnolia Down Under this week!!  Make your sentiment the focal point of the card.  WELL, as some of my friends know, sentiments are NOT my strong point BUT when you have an image that's half it's usual size made for holding a sign then PERFECT!!

I went with a non-traditional color as the new Magnolia papers very much inspired me.  They are just gorgeous!! This is my first coloring after going to the intermediate Copic course.  I learned more about light sources and while I don't quite have that mastered yet I do have a better idea about it.  Now practice!!

If you zoom into the picture you can see that I've Stickled a lot of the layers with Stardust.  Love the sparklies!!

So I hope you'll get a chance to join us this week in MDUC's challenge.  The ladies have done a fabulous job once again if you need inspiration.
