What a fantastic card Maria. Love the bright and cheerful colors, your coloring is amazing, makes me want to get back into the copic habbit.
Beautiful papers sketch!
And thanks for posting a picture of your scraps, I like how they are standing up in the box, mine are all laying flat and it takes me forever to dig in it. I will have to reorganize mine.
