Another MIM # 58 Graduated Background

I previously mentioned the technique used for coloring a background using copics or reinkers.  I do not have any reinkers, so I stayed with copics.  I stamped the flower and leaves from Pretty Peonies and hand cut them out.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Butterflies...I sure do like the fonts from that set!  You can check out the technique and cards that were made on Nichole's blog for Papertrey, Inc.

This is the second card I made...
