CASology #92 & The Challenge #5

My card for 2 challenges:
Stampin Up stamp colored with Copics on PTI's cardstock & pattern paper in Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest.
It took me several times coloring this with the copics.  It was good practice but frustrating also.  I would get so much done and make a big booboo and have to start all over.  I finally got one I was happy with.   I need lots more practice...
