Flowers make me happy!

Tomorrow is Monday, another week of work and will be saying bye bye to August 2010. I love flowers and seeing them makes me happy. My favorite flowers are calla lilies and tiger lilies, but any flowers will bring a smile to my face. I have to say, I don't see many blue colored flowers, but I am sure there are plenty, I just don't know them.
Yesterday, I attended Jennifer Dove's copic class (the card samples are on her blog) at Paper Vineyard, my local scrapbook store. We colored three out of fourth images and made one card. The class was 4 hours. The last image is a Christmas/winter image which I will eventually get around to it. I made a birthday card out of the colored flower image. The colors are based on Jenn's card sample for the copic class. I need to practice on shadowing with my copic markers. I am extremely happy that I took the copic class because Jenn is a great teacher and I learned a lot. I will be taking Jenn's next copic class in September.
The image is from Stampendous and the sentiment is from PTI. I haven't done much distressing on my cards lately, but do love this technique. I gives a old vintage look to cards. I love this blue polka dots paper, it is georgous, there is a felt feel to the circles and the paper has a shimmery shine to it. I got this assortment of felt feel papers from Costco for probably over 2 years now and haven't use much of these papers.
