Try Something New!

Today is my first post as DT for the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!
I am very happy to be part of their team and the challenge for this week
is to Try Something New.
 Just use a new technique, idea, or product.  
Here's the card I made for this challenge
Coloring with my copics on kraft paper was really
something new for me to try.
It's a little bit tricky because the usual colors 
might not work, I had to use darker shades to 
get through the dark paper.
Liked the result, although not really happy 
...just have to keep practicing.
Tell me what you think.

Here's a closer look..
flowers from Kaisercraft, and the sentiment is made up
using my computer. Papers are from the Love Me and Fun Day Col 
from My Minds Eye. Other: old heart button, small black brads.

Try something new and show it to us!
Place  your project at 
 by Tuesday at Midday CST!
