On Line Card Class Copics Day 13-2 - Having fun

My second card for the last day of Copics class.  What a great, awesome class this was.  I learned so much.
This was a technique, Jennifer showed today coloring die cuts.  I used PTI's Turning a new Leaf and Bold Bouquet for the flowers.  I inlaid the leaves and made a side panel using my copics to match the red flower.  This is another great tip from Jennifer.  I popped the flowers using small round pop ups from Deanna K.
