Mojo Monday #177 - Magnolia Birthday Card with Ribbon Violets

OK, so I am back in business. Picked up a new camera yesterday, couldn't wait until Wednesday. I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for this card and hand made ribbon flowers. You can find instruction for making these flowers in the book by Helen Gibb - Ribbonwork The Complete Guide.

I would also like to say that I am still working on perfecting my colouring with Copics. I tried a different cardstock this time. I usually use Neena Solar White, but I was having some problems with feathering and bleeding. So, for this card I used XPress It Blending cardstock. I didn't mind it, have to use it more to see if I like the blending. What paper do you find works best with Copics?
