flowers in glass jar (from Sandy Allnock's video)

This card is taken directly from Sandy Allnock's video tutorial.  As you can see, I followed her directions and design very closely.  I am still a novice at using Copics, so her video was a great help!  I urge you to check out her blog.  She has so many wonderful things there, including many instructional videos. I have linked the video I used here.

Here is the card I made using the video as a guide:

I used distress inks for the coloring behind the window and the strip along the bottom.  The window was cut out using Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Duo 3 die, the white strip was cut using Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Borders 2 die, and the stamped flowers, jar, and sentiment are from Flourishes' Garden Picks clear stamp set.  They were cut out using the coordinating Garden Picks die cuts file. Pretty Pink Posh sequins were added and the top was popped up with foam tape. 
I still need to work on blending my flower colors - the small, detailed flowers were a little more than I had patience for, but I tried to use some contrast.  Next time, I'll spend more time on the flowers to make them look more realistic.  Since I need to mail this out soon, it will have to do.

Overall, I am quite happy with the results.  Thanks so much for taking a look.
