Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Natures Garden by Prima

Gosh this card took longer to do than it should have done. First I made a base and colored the image and then when I went to put the image on and add embellishments it just didn't look right. So I went to look for more papers but of course they had to match my already colored image as I didn't have time to start from scratch at that point. But finally it all worked and I am pretty pleased with the results.
I hope I have inspired you to get a little inky and join in with our Vintage/Shabby Chic challenge at Pile It On
