Polaroid Birthday Card

Been busy here at our house.
My husband and I ripped all the shelving out of our master closet then patched, painted and rehung new shelving this weekend.  SO much more functional.

I am still working on the 16 scrapbook pages (8 for each child) 
from our vacation last summer.
The basics are completed, just need to embellish a bit.  
Nothing to write home about, just simple pages to remember the trip.

Made little progress on my 3 dimensional art project for our bedroom.
Bought the wrong paper, ran out of spray paint, ran out of glue sticks, ran out of motivation, 
yadda yadda

Anyway, sharing a card I made this morning.  
Lots if birthdays coming in October so I need to stock up!

 The sentiments are supposed to mimic a flash going off...

Ok so this is my first attempt at coloring with Copics.
I won 40 of the Copic Ciao markers from Kathy's blog giveaway.
I admit I did not review any videos prior to coloring.
If you know of some good ones, please link me up.
I think it is *ok* for my first go at it.  
Maybe looks better from a distance, hee hee
