Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Carnation Love with Wild Rose Studio Butterfly Glade Paper

Hello friends.  It has been really cool here in Southern CA, cloudy; but no rain.  I hope you are having fabulous spring weather wherever you are.  

didn't think I would have the time to create another card this week.  I have a lot to do before my family comes to visit.  I can't stay away from my craft room when I am home.  You can only do a certain amount of housework; and then you have to have a break!  Right? I get so tired doing housework; but crafting makes me feel so much better.  LOL! 

This image is the fabulous Ching-Chou Kuik Carnation Love.  It is free on her Facebook group; which you can join at any time.  Ching-Chou created it just for us to enter into her May challenge.  This challenge ends May 31, 2015.  I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it.  It has been die cut and waiting for me to find time to color it.  My biggest challenge in creating a card is trying to find the paper I want to use; and then trying to match Copic markers to the paper.  Does anyone else find this a challenge?  It is very time consuming for me.
