Look who is turning 5

It is the middle of the week, I can't wait until Friday as I am taking a Copic class at my LSS, Paper Vineyard where the talented Jennie Black will be teaching basic copic technique. I have been coloring with copics for awhile now and haven't taken a class, so I am excited to learn new things or just learning how to blend with these markers. I am SUPER excited about this class.

Ok, back to my card, I made this card for my niece, Audrey who is turning 5 this month. She is the one on the left in the picture sitting in my Mom's lap. She wasn't very happy in this picture because she was fighting with her sister over something and her Dad (my brother) gave her a talk. I am the one holding her sister, Charlotte. As you can see I am not very photogenic. I can't believe how much Audrey has grown and she is starting kindergarten this coming September. I truly miss her as I don't get to see her much these days since I move over to Arizona and she lives in California. I have to say that I got a gigantic hug last month when I came back from my Canada trip (my Mom, Dad, and I just drove back from our trip (12 hours from Portland, OR to San Leandro, CA), it sure brighten my day after the long drive, Audrey and Charlotte starting running to give me a big huge while shout "Auntie" (in Chinese). What a welcoming gift. Audrey is so into this ballerina thing, loves to watch Angelina Ballerina on tv.
As always Imy cardmaking process starts with a stamp and a sketch I work to work with. The sketch is from this week's Friday Sketch #113. This stamp is Penny Black, stamped on watercolor paper and embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored the image with Tombow markers using watercoloring technique. The applied couple of layers of pink stickles on the number 5. I made clouds in the background which really doesn't go along with the theme unless the little ballerina are throwing stars up to the sky and not have fallen stars.
