Happy Friday!
I hope you had a wonderful week! Wish I could claim that..I've been sick as a dog. The fever finally broke, but now I have the cough from hell. And my voice is all but gone. I'm pretty sure all this was originally set off by allergies & spending an afternoon outside last week. All the smoke from the fires north of us didn't help one bit. There have been days where we were blanketed by haze from the smoke. 

Anyway, I drug my self out of misery to create this card. And in my sad state, it took me longer than normal to color this wonderful image. Then a really bad thing happened & ruined it. Yikes! I had to start all over. Don't you hate it when that happens? Since it's a fairly large image, I stamped the first part of the greeting over the top, added a couple of layers and attached it to the card before I had a chance to ruin another, lol. 

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. Yes..apparently it takes a village of Copics to color this!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

What a beautiful card Julie! Love all the blue - a perfect accent to make all the red and green POP and your shading is incredible! Bummer the first one got ruined, but why am I not going to be surprised to see a part of it in a future card??? Hope you feel better soon!!

Your coloring is so perfect, Julie. I do wish I could take some lessons from you!!!!! Your color combo is excellent, all the blue makes the red and green really pop. Sorry your first image got ruined, been there, done that! I'm sure you'll be using part of that image on a card somewhere in the near future!! Trust you are feeling better now!

Wow, you would never know you were on your last leg by how gorgeous this card is! Blow away by your coloring and I hope you are feeling better by now. And by the by, it took me a month to shake that cough...Yuck :(
