Cup & Pansies/ DT Announcement

Hello everyone. I am proud to announce that I have been invited to serve on the Design Team for
 Fred She Said Digital Design & Papercrafting Goodness Store. This is a new challenge for me, so I'm hoping I can do Tracey Lynn Miller's artwork justice.
I chose this Pansy digital to post for my "Debut" so to speak, LOL. I LOVE this design. It comes in pre-colored as well as ready to color, in the store. Mine are colored by me as i am hooked on my Copic markers! Make sure you go there and check all the beautiful things Tracey has to offer. This term I am serving will be for six months. Four showcased cards each month, blog hops and more! It should be lots of fun. I looking forward to all the other girls on the teams designs as well. This is definitely going to be a learning curve for me, Yah Hoo!!
OK, here goes for the elements used in this card.
Papers: DCWV, Best Creations and solid color cardstock from my stash.
Punch & Dies: Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch, CC Designs Butterflies, Spellbinders Parisian Motifs, & Labels Ten, Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco E, Marianne Designs LRo116 Flourish.
Sentiment is Whimsy Stamps Every Day Circle Post Marks
FSS digital stamp Cup and Pansies.
Ribbon, pearls, Viva liquid pearls & Diamond Stickles from my stash.

Copic markers used:
Yellows are Y17, 13, 11, 000
Pinks, R81, RV000
Pansy centers, BV08
Green leaves, YG67, 63, 61 & G20
Hope you've enjoyed this card & thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Maureen
