Prisma Premier

Loved the color challenge over at Play Date so had to put a card together. I decided this would be a good time to break out the new Prismacolors I got for Christmas from daughter Amy. I scoured the 'net' for a few online tutorials, broke open a bottle of Goo Gone, and the package of stumps and away I went! My first Prisma card!
