I copied a card...gasp!!!!

I treated myself to a copy of the latest issue of  "Paper Creations " magazine the other day. Mostly because the card on the cover really caught my eye. I've never used these colours together before so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I didn't have all the same items (ribbon etc)as the card I was copying, but I improvised and I'm really pleased with the result. Many of you know that I rarely, if ever, copy a card made by someone else. Sometimes I start out copying but it ends up looking very different from the original, because I get a different idea as I'm working on it. This one is an exception. If I had all the same materials it would have been an exact replica! I used the black Viva pearl pen for the spots on the ladybug and they look so shiny and cool! If I did it again I would use the dotted swiss paper for the white background...I didn't notice that it was used on the original card until I was finished. Just thought I'd share it with you. Happy National Scrapbooking Day...albums and refill pages are on sale (20% off) and you can stock up on Bazzill 12 x 12 solid colour cardstock this week for just .60 cents a sheet (regular .99 cents each.)
