A Little Niece's Birthday!

I had a yen to make a child's card and Audrey's six-year birthday provided me with an excuse to satisfy that whim.  I pulled out my "To Do Stash" and decided I really wanted to do a little coloring with my Copics as I had not done this in quite some time!  In my stash, I found a card kit with an uncolored Magnolia stamped image provided, which were designed by my sister, Heidi Gonzales, (mylilscrapcorner.blogspot.com), and I thought it would be perfect.  I did change the original card a little as I wanted it to be a bit larger and square, but loving the little ribbon embellishment, I kept it just like it was.  I took the papers provided and re-arranged their layout, added the orange below the argyle and added a kraft matting layer behind.  I also used Copic markers instead of the original woodless-color pencil technique provided in the card instructions.  I was pleased to find my coloring technique return and began to feel more comfortable again as I worked.  I think my little jumping rope Tilda turned out really cute. I hope Audrey likes her.
