Taking on a challenge.

So I decided to take on a challenge with Gina K at StampTV . I normally don't do these types of challenges with online sites and such, but this one was something I always wanted to learn. I purchased my prismacolor pencils about 2 years ago and really knew how to use them with my odorless mineral spirits. I did not know that you needed to have a good quality smooth cardstock. What a difference it does make. The last time I used my pencils I did not use smooth quality cardstock and notice that my paper would tear and ball up. Needless to say my cards were not the best, but thought it was because I did not know how to use my pencils. Now I have some top quality smooth cardstock, thanks to a dear friend at TheMonkeyHut. I have watched the video tutorial at StampTV and ready to create. I am defiantly intimidated to enter my card on the site, there are tons of extremely talented people that create such gorgeous cards. But here it goes.... I am ready. Here is what I came up with and yes... I noticed a BiG difference using quality cardstock. Thank you Gina K for teaching me how to use my pencils. Now they will not be collecting dust!
Thank you!!!!!
