Whoops! I think Marci looks a wee bit sunburnt - hmmm better face shading is needed! All practice for me - I went back to Emerald straight after our weekend in Sydney so took some images and my Copics and had fun! It is so relaxing to do colouring. It is hard to believe that one could sit and colour for over two days at the Conference but the time just flew and with all the chatter and being shown ideas and techniques throughout the days, it was great!

I thought it was about time I showed a card finished after seeing our Conference friends showing their work. Thank you girls for making the weekend so good - I enjoyed it all and learnt so much.

For this card, I used SU Marina Mist for the base , a Regal Rose retired paper for the pink and some blue gingham paper from my stash. I was very inspired by this card of Debbie Pamment's - it is gorgeous! What - no ribbon?? Well I used rhinestone swirls and flowers so decided no room for ribbon LOL.

The wording is from Stampin' Up as were the oval and scalloped punches used for the wording layers.

Fabulous card, Jean! I never even noticed Marci's sunburn...I was struck by how perfectly I thought your coloring was! I love the bling and flowers! Gorgeous!

Oh wow Jean. What a beautiful card. Love the embellishments. Her hair looks nice and I like the blue of her dress. Yep, that's what I've got to do, practise.
