From Melanie:  Oops! Realized after I wrapped up my shoot, I forgot to add the darker IG7 marker.  Trace along on the underside of each of the lighter gray IG5 ripples you draw to make these more dimensional! That’s it!

Excellent card.  First I thought it was difficult for a beginning card maker, but after 2 practices it was great.

Such a beautiful scene; great video, you make it look quite easy.  LOL!  Thanks for the tips, never thought of making an image as a silhouette; great idea!

This is an awesome idea!  I remember Carrie well, though I think there is a K in her name, rather than a C. I took an online class of hers through Annie's.  I will definitely keep her in my thoughts and prayers.  Now, I think I really need that set.  It is really reminding me of my daughter's with the long hair and their birthdays are rapidly coming and this would be great.  May just have to shop!  Thanks for the wonderful ideas.
