{TAC} We LOVE Softpencil Studios and Phyllis Harris Blog Hop

Today is our Totally Awesome Chicks design team final blog hop. We will have one more post on Dec. 28 of honoring the great The Angel Company and it's images.  I'm so thrilled Red Rubber Designs purchased part of the company and will keep making their stamps plus add more.  Anyway, I LOVE Phyllis Harris images and especially her Brandy & Emma series.  I'm using the set "Brandy and Emma" today for my card.

I used a fancy fold called Twisted Easel.  When I show you the open card you'll see it better. I used dark green and yellow solid card stocks and a pattern paper by Simple Stories from the set Destinations.  I love these colors!

I colored Brandy with Copic markers: YR21, YR23, YR24,N0, N2, and BG72.  I really like how this turned out.  Are you ready for the open card???

Isn't this just cool?? This card is 5" x 5" so will need a large envelope to mail.  And the text is so wonderful.  You can click on the picture for a larger view.  I learned this card from a cool CD put out by Technique Junkies.

I have been a "junkie" for quite a few years and have learned SO much!!  If you chose to sign up for the newsletters please let Pat know you heard it from me!

      Very cool card! I love the plaid, it gives it a more masculine look.
