Be Yourself

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  I hope your long weekend is off to a great start!  It's a beautiful day here and I'm looking forward to getting outside to enjoy some of it!  Before I do, I am here to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing when I can find the time.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Wild Wasabi and the patterned papers are from the GCD Studios Happiness by Kathy Davis 6x6 pad.  The image is Nevaeh 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 a few highlights with my Sharpie White Paint Pen and Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I thought it was perfect for this purple-haired beauty!   A few pearls in the corners finished my card.

Here is a close up of the image:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11
Hair and purple on outfit: BV000, BV02, BV08
Green: G40, G43, G46

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Saturated Canary Challenge #44 (different hair)
The Squirrel and The Fox #44 (here come the girls)
The Corrosive Challenge #174 (my sentiments exactly; sentiment on front)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day and see you soon!
