I had to make a card for a seventeen year old and what a better way to get back into the swing of things than to colour.
This card is very straight forward really with no embellishments other than a bit of glimmer / sparkle on the old olive panel and because it needs to be posted no dimensions or pop ups. The postal service over here is becoming quite expensive if items need to be hand sorted.
The glitter spray was made with perfect pearls Biscotti and water and gives a lovely shimmery effect to any surface.
I matched the Copic markers up to the SU colours Berry Burst, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight, a list of the Copic markers used is on my blog along with a rant about using backing paper if your interested.

It's so nice to see you in the gallery, Marg! I agree.....colouring is a great way to get back into the swing of things. It looks like you had a ball with this card.....it's absolutely adorable. I love the background on your main panel!!
