Barb *Day 6*

Here is our last inspiration card from Barb:

Can you believe that this is her first try with Copics?!! I love the shading on the flowers and the grass at the bottom looks awesome, too! The purple is such a regal color choice. Barb's overall design perfectly draws attention to the focal image. Finally, the rounded corners and embossing finish off this beauty of a card!
Here is my take:

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by this week! AND BIG THANKS to Barb for playing along and allowing me to share your talent on my blog! If you haven't been to visit Barb's PHOTOSTREAM be sure to stop by--she updates regularly with her lovely creations!
