I struggled on this one but always enjoy a challenge:-) Just make sure you use copic markers, promarkers or colored pencils have been added:-)

Reading is Fundamental is the charity I have chosen to sponsor this season. As you all know I am an avid reader and it amongst my very favorite things to do in my spare time. I truly believe that literacy and reading opens up many doors in life for everyone. Not only can you find joy in books but it opens your eyes to other cultures, places and people that is so worthwhile. And just the fact that a huge part of life involves being able to read--to get through school, get a great job and navigate through life. For me teaching children to read early on in life is a MUST yet so many children are not provided with the basic materials to learn to read. So this charity is a non-profit that provides books to children and opportunities to bring literacy into areas that need it!

I used a Lili Of the Valley stamp and used the Copic "y" family to creat the gold effect, it looks yellow but as I used the photo Suzanne put up as influence I picked the "yellow" family to go with adding touches of gold stickles and spic pens

Here is a picture of the colors to use as a guide
