I finally got around to making a card. My mom was in the hospital and going out there to see her with three kids everyday was no picnic! I was worried about her and the kids were restless and the heat and high humidity didn't help matters either. The hospital released her and she is 100% better. I think I slept practically all day Saturday and I needed it too!
The card I made today is a patterned off a sketch from Julee of Poeticartistry. She has some beautiful cards over there and I love the challenge!

cardstock: SU's Old Olive and Papertrey Ink White
paper: K&Co.
ribbons: ribbon stash
Ink: SU Black and Prisma Color pencils and Gamasol
stamps: Verve Visual and Inkadinkado
I also used SU's ticket punch,Quickie Gel, Diamond Dust and dimensionals.

I was very pleased with this card and the more I use the Prismacoler Pencils, the more I like them. It's like "magic" when you finally "get it" and I still have alot to learn. After I put my card together, I realized that I didn't "ground" the gift box and it looks like it's suspended in mid-air! Too late now.....but I still am pleased with the out come. Please enjoy!

You are getting really good with the coloring Malieta! I love the colors that you used. It is like you said "magic" when using the Gamsol! It's just not the same without it! Beautiful card as always!

So glad to hear your mom is out of the hospital. I can't imagine the hassle of taking 3 kids there.

I think your card is perfect the way it is, nice coloing, great LO, super-fun ribbons. It's never too late to "fix" something though. I often ground my images afterwards using a grey prismacolor. Just draw it in!
