Monday Mania with Club Anya and Friends

How is everyone doing tonight?? I actually finished this card last night, but it was late and I didn't feel like staying up to post it. I created this card for Monday Mania over at Club Anya and Friends.
This weeks challenge was hosted by Jen Shuts. If you have never seen her work you have got to go check her out!! Her coloring is just amazing!! Her Challenge for Monday Mania was a color challenge to use
olive green
Dark Brown
& Sparkle!!
So this is my take on it, and I used Ruby a Wild Sprout stamp by Amy Young at The Greeting Farm. If you would like to play along you have until Noon CST Sunday Jan.24 to have your creation uploaded to TGF Galleria. Please visit Club Anya and Friends for all the details and to see some of the DT members creations and Jen's card!!
I know I have talked about using Gina K's pure Luxury white CS!! And that is what I used with Ruby! I am not a fan of this CS !! The ink from my copics jsut set on top of the paper and eventually just doesn't blend anymore!! I know alot of people love this CS and would not use anything else!! I would rather say with my Georgia Pacific as I can blend as much as I want!! So I am not happy with the way Ruby turned out!!( THe coloring part)!! I did order some PTI white CS and it should be in by next week!! I will let you know what I think of it as soon as it comes in and I get a chance to test it!! I hope me not liking the Gina K CS offended anyone, it's just not for me!! Thanks for listening!!

Very cool card - I love the circle and popped up flowers and of course your coloring looks beautful, despite the problems you had with the CS. I feel the exact same way as you do about the Gina K!! But I am so in love with the PTI - I hope you are thrilled with it! :-)Traci

Love this, you did an awesome job with the challenge Angela! I like the dimension the flowers add and Ruby is too cute!
I'll be interested in your views of the PTI, I was amazed at the difference with using it! I've stayed away from Gina K because of your review of it earlier, thanks...I know it would drive me crazy too!

Love this card! The flowers, the swirls, the cute image..totally a gorgeous creation!
I had tried a few images that were sent to me on Gina's Pure Luxury and I didn't like it either, glad to know I'm not alone in that. I use neenah or georgia pacific now!
