A Garden is a Work of the Heart

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  I hope that you week is going great so far. Today I have a card to show you that I made for Speedy The Cat's challenge for Mark's Finest Papers.  They have a color challenge this week, Bright and Cheery-- pink, green and yellow.  I also used the sketch this week from Card Positioning Systems.  I will be entering this into the challenges for iCopic and Copic Creations, who both have a challenge to use pastel colors.   I am going to also enter this into The Ribbon Carousel's challenge Button It Up.  I wanted the pink to look like the inside of a watermelon, to create it I took a copic marker (C9) to just lightly touched the side of a brush tip to give a slight tear drop shape.  I really liked how this was coming out except I didn't' know when to quit and added too many seeds IMHO.   Thank you for stopping by.
