Happy Monday - It's November 1st!!!!

Yes I am still here.
Been fighting the bronchitis germs and they really got me down. Beginning to feel better this weekend.
I made this card for a good friend. Hope she likes it.
I am still struggling with my Copics but hope that with each card I will feel more comfortable and learn something new.

Here is the inside:
Magnolia image is from Diana's Store ( click on my sidebar ) This one is called: Peony Tilda and is #392 from the Bridal Collection.
I have used: October afternoon Design Paper. Liked adding the red to this pretty old fashioned print :o)
Stamping Up card stock : Sage Shadow and the red paper is Bazzil
Ribbon from SU; Crystal Lacquer to Tilda's shoes and the centre of the peony; Stickles - Eucalyptus on the lacey part of Tilda's dress; Happy Birthday Ticket - digital; all of my paper has been distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink: Vintage Photo.
Copics used: Skin: E000, E00, E21; cheeks: R02; Hair: Y23, YR23, E35; Peony and shoes: R05, R08, E07; Leaves: YG95, YG99,
Main Dress: BG32, BG34, BG23; lace part of dress: BG0000, BG000
Sorry to be such a short post, have to run to an appointment!
Love, Candy
