Back to School

Hello!  Wow - 2 weeks without a post... I'm really slipping!  To prove I haven't really been slacking, I have 2 projects to show you that I'm excited about.

First, another card.  It looks very similar to my 'monochromatic' card from a couple of weeks ago:
I am having so much fun with the LUSH line of paper from My Mind's Eye!  My babysitter is getting married this coming weekend, and her wedding colors are black and white with a hint of red.  The card is 5"x5", and the 'doors' are each 3" so they overlap a little bit creating a more dramatic opening.

I am entering this card in Die Cuttin Divas "Pick at Least 2 Colors" Challenge this week!
ETA: My card did not win this challenge, but I was one of 3 cards chosen for their showcase - How exciting!!! See the showcase here: Die Cuttin Divas

The Skinny on this card:
All Cardstock - LUSH by My Mind's Eye
Black CS - Papertrey Ink Pure Black
Sentiment Stamp - Fiskars stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black
Pearl Trim - Joann's (bought by the yard)
Red Pearls - Stash

My next project is my first submission for an online COPICS class that I am taking.  It just started today, and our first assignment was to color 'something' for the instructors to see, so that they can offer insight and get a sense of what skills we are needing to work on.  Here's my initial submission:
Angel Anya

I was excited about how her hair turned out, but I need help on that dress and the wings.  The instructors said that we will be coloring these same images at the end of the class again, so we can see how much we have improved.  I'm hoping to share my journey with you here - if I don't have too much homework, I'll be sure to post often!  It's a 3 week class with 18+ lessons, so I plan on being pretty busy!

Sorry no pink project to share, but I do hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Valentine's Day!
