CAS Posy Thank You Card for Jan

I went to the Glitter Pot today and bought a pack of textured 4" square cards and some square gems. I got home and checked out the CAS challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. It was 'It's Hip to be Square!', (we were to make a square card), so my new purchases fit right in LOL!

I also bought my first batch of Copic markers so this is the first card made with an image coloured with them. I look forward to getting better with practise! The flower image is cut out and popped up. I also coloured the clear square gems with a blue Copic marker, how fab to be able to do that!

My good, crafty friend Jan lent me her Copic markers so that I could try them out to see how I got on with them, bless her heart! This thank you card will go to her to say thank you for her kindness.

Stamps: Hero Arts Peeking Posies & Thank You Messages sets

Ruth these colors together are so striking.. I love this. I found a place here in the U.S. that sells them very reasonable. My collection is slowly growing. I love them now..Super job..
