Getting Better

Every time I make a new card, I feel like I am getting better. They say practice makes perfect. I say practice shows better results in time. My last card was in the top 5 of Hope Stamps Eternal. I couldn't be any happier. It really made me feel like maybe I finally found something that I could really get good at and would be worth the practice. Thank you all for the comments and support, it really pushes me to strive for the best.
That all being said, Here is my new card. I love it. I think if I was a card, this would be me. I love the colors I used and being Asian American really connects with me. (Nevermind the little whoopsie about the o in you, had a bit of a glue problem)
What I used to make this card
-Basic Grey Nook and Pantry Paper
-Geisha Stamp by Teri
-3d flower by K&Co
-Copic Markers, Ribbon and Brads by Pink Hedgehog
