Musical Birthday...and copic tip

Happy Wednesday! The week is halfway over, yay! I am so mad, I missed Glee last night. I hope I can watch it on the Internet...the 15 minutes that I caught at the end were awesome.

In keeping with the musical theme, here is a card I was asked to make for a friend of a coworker for her 90th birthday. I decided to go for something a bit conservative. No characters and no copics...I know shocking right?

But I do have a copic tip for you. If you haven't been on Sharon Harnist's blog lately there is a post about Copic 6 marker sketch sets now being sold at Hobby Lobby. I really like the color choices in those kits Pale Pastels (YR31 YR12 BV01 BV0000 BG15 BG11 and Perfect Primaries Y19 Y13 R46 R43 B04 B00). I like that these sets give you two each of 3 shades that you can blend with..nice little kit if you are just starting out and are too timid to order your markers online .

Also on Sharon's Copic Info page she has a link to a great chart from Just Rite Stampers. They have jumped on the PTI and Flourishes bandwagon and are selling Copic Collor Collections in quads and trios. Here is the link to the chart on Sharon's blog- Just Rite Stampers -Copic Color Collections . It has some really good color combinations on it and you can print it out for your reference.

Oh and here is a picture of the inside of my card. I haven't decorated the inside of a card in quite some time. I like how it turned out. Maybe I will do it more often...nah I know I won't. lol!

Recipe: SU! Sentiment, PTI Vintage Cream cardstock, SU! Chocolate Chip, River Rock, and Kraft Cardstock, Basic Grey Capella paper and doilies, Prima Say It In Pearls and flowers, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape.
