Is it spring already? Is it, is it? Pleaaaase...?

No? Sure? Oh dear... my card is a little early then.... :-) Hope you don't mind, though.

I made this card for the meet-up earlier this month to showcase a little bit of Copic colouring. I used a couple of Stamp sets by Papertreyink and the coordinating Jar Label die for the sentiment.
The border is also a PTI die. The image was matted onto turquoise and chocolate cardstock.
Background paper is by Prima, matted onto chocolate card and the Organza ribbon is from stash.
 I really should get into the habbit of taking picture of the colours I use for colouring in my images... I see that done on several blogs. Is that something you, my readers want? Let me know and if you do I'll make an effort to do it!
Here's a close-up of the focal image:

Hope you like my offering today and please leave me a comment if you do!

Beautiful colouring Alexandra, I for one would certainly appreciate a list of the colours used each time if possible. Many thanks,

Really is a lively card Alex. If you are able to provide a list of colours, I would appreciate it.

This looked even better in the flesh Alex. Lovely colouring. Perhaps a list of colours would at least give me a chance of getting some practice in with my copic colouring.
