Dots & Teensy Pearls

More new SU! This is from the Bloomin' Beautiful set available in March. I am still getting the feel of my Copic markers, I really enjoy them so far and am glad I splurged. I stamped the flower in India Black, the blackest ink I know of, and used my copics to color. I cut the ovals with my nestabilities, I don't think I could make a card with out using them anymore. The red frame on both ovals is a copic marker... after I cut my oval I left it in the die and used it as a template to draw the black inner circle, removed the die, then I used a red marker to color the edge... my new favorite thing the signo pen for dots and anything else I can work in! This is the BEST white pen I have ever had. The black and white paper is from Paper Parachute and I colored in portions of the flower with a marker to help tie in a color. My favorite part of the card.... see the teensy little pearl string.... this was a find at Michael's in the Christmas ribbon they had this year, it is on a roll with red, green and white. I love it. I already started thinking about the little green ones on St. Pat's cards! The striped background is from the SU Prints Pack (hostess gift).
