Papertake Weekly - pick of the year and my first go with Spectrum Noir

UPDATE!!! My very awesome and wickedly talented friend Sheri Willshire helped me get my blog back to normal! Thanks girlfriend! You are AWESOME!!!
Hi everyone!!  First to my regular visitors, I'm sorry...I don't know what is going on with my blog right now. I can't get my side bar back to the side. It popped down there all by itself without me making any kind of alterations on my blog. And it's decided it likes it down at the bottom I suppose, cause I just can't convince it to come back to it's proper spot. I'll keep trying!  I refuse to let a stupid computer get the best of me!! lol!! Now on to what this post is supposed to be about.  :D    It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week it's another fun one!  You get to pick your favorite challenge of 2012!! Yep! Have fun! And we are sponsored by our very own amazingly talented Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl! If you want the most gorgeous ribbon and embellies, then head straight there!!  For my card today, I have used the amazing image of Virginia  from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I LOVE her!! And I've used her with the Three, Two, One Challenge. So I've used three poinsettias, two designer papers, and one super cute image! :)

Now this is my very first image I colored with the set of Spectrum Noir pens from Hallmark Scrapbook! I've got a lot to learn in figuring out the color combinations, but the colors are truly gorgeous! They are a very affordable and they blend beautifully! Please be sure to pop over to Hallmark Scrapbook to check out all the gorgeous colors and sets that Jody has available. You will be seeing more creations from me using these markers, and hopefully I'll get better at using them.

The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses matted with Bazzill cardstock. The poinsettias are from a Spellbinders die with some Stickles and pearl centers. That bow is made with May Arts silk ribbon and I added some pearls with the Viva Decor pearl pen. Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see all the gorgeous creations by my teamies and or amazing Guest Designers! And then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us for a chance to win an amazing prize from The Ribbon Girl! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
