My First Card with Copic Markers!

Copics are definitely addictive!

I starting coloring with my Copic Markers and I just can't put them down! I have so many images ready for cards I don't know where to start!
Well, at first I didnt' know where to start!
So...Here is my first Copic colored image! I am in love with my markers.  The ease of applications is amazing and the blending is such fun! I have found out that I need to round out my colors a bit more, mainly to add some brown or earth tones.  I knew the minute I touched the tip to the paper that they were worth the money.  the colors are uniformed and vibrant.  They blend well and the colorless blender is just a miracle worker! Great when I color outside the lines...which of course I never do!
The stamp is from High Hopes which I bought at Scrappin' Great Deals.
The layout I used was last weeks CPS challenge.  The first one I have ever done and must say I am very happy that I did!  
As usual the Paper is from the Paper Company all but the card stock that the image is on, that is white Bazzill card stock which was recommended to me by Meghan at The Paperie as the best paper to use for Copic markers.  Thanks Meghan! Once again you were so right!
The sun and the lower butterfly were stamped separately and added to the card with pop dots. I was very tempted to add a bow but didn't want to take away from the main image.

So, how do you think I did with my first attempt at coloring with Copic Markers?
