New Fussy and Fancy Challenge! Swirls & Flourishes!

Hello and Happy Friday!
We made it through another week!  I know that all of us love and treasure our weekends!   I always make sure that I find time to craft and make
cards during the weekend!  
I got an early Birthday present from my
very dear husband!  
I kept talking about wanting to get Prisma colored pencils
to use along with my copic markers
 and he surprised me by ordering me some for my
Now I need to sit this weekend and watch some 
tutorials while I play with them!  I'm so excited!  If only we had Copic and prisma pencil classes around
where I live!  
I haven't found any as of yet though.  I'm so very grateful for the internet and you tube
 so that I can watch tutorials from so many talented people!
Today we have a brand new challenge at
Swirls and Flourishes!
Here is my card using
