Hello to all and Happy Tuesday.  It has been such a lovely day here, cold but sunny and we have just returned from an invigorating walk.    I hope this finds you well. 

My card for today features the fabulous image Murray from Saturated Canary which I purchased from the lovely Krista last week.  I have coloured this in several colour variations but will show the pink one today.  You may have noticed that pink is my favourite colour.


List of materials used to make this card:

Wonderful Murray image as listed above coloured using my new Copic Pens with a tiny touch of pencil detail.
Kanban shaped card base approx 5.5" x 8".
Designer papers are from my stash.
Die cuts are shaped rectangle, flower swirl, hearts are Sizzix, and Anja corner die to make hidden label detail.  I so love making these little hidden details.
Flowers and ribbon are from my stash and I have again been enthusiastic with the liquid pearls.
