My WNW stamps were calling out to me today :)) 
Patricia at Paper Temptress has this really different paper called "Cosmic Coloring Paper"~~~
I won a gift certificate from there and decided to try this paper.  Really really different ~ the paper is shiny, thin and feels slippery~~when using my copics, I found that the ink does not get absorbed into the paper; sooo the blending qualities were very different.  Quite fun tho:))  Check it out!!  So onto my card~~~

Chose the sketch by Bev~~I Just Love this Gal's Work!!! Go >>HERE<< to check her blog out :))
who is Special Guest Sketch Artist this week~~at Pixie Cottage

Meet Gemma and Bella from WNW!! They are the sweetest!!
Few details~~CB swiss dot folder used on scalloped mattings.  Dotted image matting with Broken china stickles.  The green and yellow strip was border punched and embossed with CB vine folder and then swiped with TH broken china distess ink to better see the embossing
Now the inside of my Easel Card. I colored the flower buttons with my copics and added green rhinestones as centers!  Bordered the message area with Spiced Marmalade Stickles

Close up of image~~kinda like the texture the paper gave to the kittens :) Litely dusted edges of image with TH peeled paint distress ink.

Closer look at flower embellishments~~used Sizzix branch w/leaves and tipped leaf edges with Broken China stickles, Paper studio flowers, Jolee's Parcel for flower center as well as a blue brad.  Added sheer green ribbon with dragonfly charm attached and tucked in a flower stem that I got from my daughter for Mom's Day!!

On this photo I tried to capture the shiny different look of copics on the Cosmic Paper
