I Am Still Around

It has been quite awhile since my last post.  Quite a busy summer.  We have had one to nine overnight guests 21 nights so far this month - out of town friends, daughter and family, other grands.  I don't mind the overnight stays, it's the cooking that wears me out! 
Thank goodness I have been able to sit and color every once in a while.  Definitely relaxing for me. This card took several sittings and combines several techniques - copic and pencil and also the use of neutral copics - both techniques that Allison Cope showed us over at Power Poppy.  The image I used is also from Power Poppy.
The "happy birthday" die  is by Memory Box.  After cutting it out and adhering to the front of the card, I coated it with Glossy Accents which gave it shine.
