Get Eggcited For Easter

Good Morning! Can you beleive I have FINALLY found the time to do a non-DT project! My first one, in awhile!  I decided to make an Easter card for a great friend, who always appreciates a handmade card.  Do you think this card is masculine enough?!

I did the entire card with Copic Markers - A rarity for me! I have several that I have been collecting  (more like hoarding!) over the last year, but I rarely use them and I'm, quite honestly, afraid of them! LOL! I'm so used to using the Promarkers and I find the Copics quite intimidating. A friend showed me how to do skin with Copics last summer, but I must admit - I havent tried it since then - An you can certainly tell I havent had any practice in ages.  Guess I'm going to have to go see her, again, this summer, and do more coloring so I can finally master it - Or at least semi-master it, once and for all! Being This is only a second attempt and this first attempt was months ago, I suppose this isn't too bad.

Oh, and what I am even more afraid of than skin, is doing hair with Copcis! Hair is so out of my comfort zone that is scares me to death! I thought, well, since skin and especially hair, are both way out of my comfort zone, this is the perfect time to do a project for the "Out Of Your Comfort Zone" challenge in the Simply Betty Stamps Fans Facebook Group! So, I  certainly plan to enter this card in that challenge! Oh sure, I know I have a snowball chance in you know where of winning - But it's worth a shot and it's fun to come out of your comfort zone now and then, isn't it?!

My card uses the image and sentiment set, Excited Corrine, from Simply Betty Stamps. For my card layout, I used the sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge.  All papers are from my stash. I used pieces of the patterned paper, to do the parts that overlap onto the sides of the image.

I am entering this card in the following challenge:
