Color Me ... Happy

My lss has pattern paper that is perfect for coloring with Copics ~ woo hoo! It is by Luxe designs and the pattern I used today is called, appropriately, Color Me ... Happy. Now ... a little disclaimer, the Copic ink will bleed a bit on this paper, so choose your colors carefully. Purples and reds seemed to be the most difficult for me. As long as I colored with a light hand the ink stayed in it's place.

I used the Unscripted Sketches 17 for the card today. I really like the way it turned out. What do you think?

Here is a close look. Maybe you can tell I used Spica glitter on the word laugh. I resisted the temptation to glitter up the whole card ... but it took a lot of restraint!

I have several more sketches I'd like to complete this week, so hopefully you'll see a few more posts from me. :)
Supplies: Luxe designs pattern paper, Reminisce stripe and floral pattern paper, Eggplant Stampin' Up cardstock, Nestabilities, Copics, velvet ribbon and various buttons.

happy stampin'

This is a wonderful, bright, and pretty card! How cool you found DP that you can color! Who doesn't need to show restraint with glitter LOL.
I love the whole effect of this card and think you did a great job with the sketch.
Thanks for playing along with us at Unscripted Sketches.

Great card! I love the bold, bright colors!
