First Try At Bamboo!

Good Morning Everyone!

When I stopped at my favourite stamp shop last Thursday I saw a beautiful card that Victoria made!  At first I thought it was a stamp but it turned out to be bamboo that she did with TomBow marders!
I just loved that card but, now that I'm getting older and my brain functions have slowed to almost nil I couldn't remember exactly what it looked like!  I brought out my Copics and started playing and this is what I came up with.  I don't think my bamboo resembles Victoria's at all and I can't remember the layout she had also.  This is my take on her card!
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Upsy Daisy and the papers used are unknown from my stash.  I highlighted the bambook with JellyRoll Star pens in green and clear.
I'll be entering this card in the UnstampaBelles Challenges for the month of July.  I couldn't get at my Cricut so drew the bamboo and only used a stamp for the sentiment. 
Have a wonderful week and I'll keep everyone posted as to Ethyl's progress!

Hugs,
Sheree
