Finding Friendship!

I had so much fun making this card! The image is a Gruffies, Finding Friendship. I was inspired by the frame tutorial a few weeks ago on SCS. The paper is Mommy and Me Woodsy Glitter. The sentiment is from an old SU set. The metal embellishments are from a 350 pack embellishment set that I totally LOVE! I colored this image with Copics. I am planning on creating a list of Copic colors that work beautifully with House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers stamps. I hear so many people complain that they have trouble coloring them. The key is to not use too dark of colors so the fur shows through. I also highlight with the Copic blender pen. The blender pen is nothing like SU blender pens. It removes color so it is perfect for adding light spots and highlighting. I have been busy with my new Recipe Card Challenge Blog! Check out the link  (: I am in the process of placing a DT together and so far I have a GREAT team! Take a LOOK
Let me know what you think!!!!!
