Be Yourself

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you've had a good weekend so far and that you enjoy what's left of it!  It's been a gorgeous fall weekend here!  Before I head out for the day, I wanted to share a card I made for a couple of challenges.  It is for Saturated Canary #28 (color inspiration), Copic Challenge #54 on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site (anything goes with a touch of red), and The Squirrel and The Fox #29 (use a ribbon).

Here is the color inspiration for the SC challenge:

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Black Onyx and the papers are a combination of My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two Rosy and Basic Grey Infuse.  My fun image is Starla from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's shop here.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Red Stickles to the tiny stars and the dots on her leggings.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  I think it was a freebie awhile back.  I added two chipboard fancy corners from Make it Crafty.  A triple-loop satin bow, a Webster's Pages Heart and three burgundy Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Here is a close-up of Starla:

Copic colors
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: W9, W7, W5, W3
Red: R22, R24, R29, R59
Burgundy: R20, R43, R46, R56, R59
Green: G20, G21, G85, G94, G99
Gray: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, W1
