Fabulous at Fifty!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a card I made for my sister's 50th Birthday! She was actually in Hawaii on her Birthday (soooo jealous), so we celebrated last weekend. She has accomplished quite a bit over the years, she has an excellent carrier, is a great parent, loving wife, fabulous cook/party  hostess AND a she's a WONDERFUL older sister!!! She even finds time in her incredibly busy schedule for yoga, which she loves. So I thought she would appreciate this card AND I was right, she loved it!! :D

This is my first attempt with a Digi Stamp and using Copic (Sketch) Markers...yes I said Copic!!! I'm so excited that I finally own some (Birthday present to myself), I've been wanting them forever forever!!!

I have to say, I'm thrilled with how my card turned out, but that's probably still the high from actually coloring with my new Copics!!! Please let me know what you think, and please be kind, since I am a newbie. :D

Did you notice hear Diamond Earring's? :D
