Hello Everyone,
Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

My oldest came home from Vegas this weekend and told me it is magical there hahaha. I guess it would be when you are that young and don't gamble. Of course I would not mind a trip there myself. Instead I just went to my local craft store and spent some money on a few more Copics, although fun, not quite magical if you know what I mean!

So today's card is rather interesting. I am taking a Copic class over at Color Me Creative Classroom with Suzanne Dean and I am learning to color rust, you know the kind that shows up on metal items. So this is a wheelbarrel that she taught us how to color. I figured why waste it, so I made a card out of it.

It is a digital image from Fred She Said. The paper is from Bo Bunny and the flowers from Prima.
The sentiment stamp is a Penny Black. The butterfly is a die from Memory Box.
Let me know if you think it actually looks like rust. Of course when Suzanne did it, it looked beautiful, I need some more practice lol.

Thanks for dropping in.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy: Punches and Dies
Crafty Ribbons: Things with Wings
Joann Sheen: For someone Special
