Mami Doodles Spots and Stripes

Welcome to my big announcement post!
1) I'm now a member of the Mami Doodles DT! *Yay!* *Hooray!*
2) This fortnight's challenge is spots and stripes, you can find more details here!
3) I've moved to a new apartment! (A very good thing for those who knew anything about my neighbors. *Ugh!*)
4) Spring has sprung! It's actually quite pretty here in Ohio right now, even though I'm allergic to it all. Only a few more days until my allergy test though, I'm learning a lot about patience. It's good for me.
5) For my birthday, I got a Big Shot Pro. =D You'll see projects that reflect this amazing news as soon as I get unpacked.
6) I have another big announcement coming soon...stay tuned.
7) I have another big announcement coming after that...continue to stay tuned!
On to the card:
This purple beauty is one I'm really proud of! I colored the image with Copic markers on PTI White Stock. All of the pieces of colored or patterned paper are scraps, most were pieces that I got for free! Yay! If you have Freecycle in your area, you should post a "wanted" for paper scraps, you'll be amazed at how many people actually just cut a chunk out and throw the rest of a 12 x 12 away. (You could probably post on CL too, but then you might have to pay $$ for it.) I love this party girl and can GUARANTEE that you will see it again on another one of my cards. Oh, and I used this week's TMS sketch, it was far too perfect to pass up!
