My first card using copics

Good Morning my fellow bloggers
My fab hubby has bought me some copics for my birthday and have been playing with the for the last few days. I prefer them from promarkers because they seem to blend more smoothly and with little effort. I have used the Neenah solar white cardstock which certainly is one of the best to use with alchohol markers and I have to tell you that this was extremely theraputic.
I have used paper mania exsquisite papers and I love the neutral yet pastel shades they really complement each other well.
I have mounted the onto some pearlescent gold shimmer beige card although it doesnt show up so well in the pictures.
The flowers were from Wild orchid crafts have a large stash of flowers from the toppers I used to make so they are coming in really handy now, when I mean a large stash I mean about 5 drawers full!!! I really like to add a bit of greenery with flowers I think it sets them off lovely and is a nice contrast for all the light colours.
The charm is from my stash and as I wasnt going to use distress inks on this card I wanted a nice bright silver charm and this one is really decorative and goes with the pink beautifully.
I have use the georgeous pretty pink satin wide ribbon and made one of my signature bows lovely for making puffy and a great addition to this card. Finally the pearls! I wanted to add something else but couldnt decide what so I have left it at that, although I still think there is something missing.
I hope my colouring comes up to scratch, One thing about me is that I will persevere to get things right and will have this down to a T Soon (I hope lol) as they say practice makes perfect.
I would also maybe like to be part of a design team, I would love that but dont know how to go about doing it can anyone help me? please contact me if you can point me in the right direction.
Well thats all for today I want to go back and play some more.
Will be back soon
