Dreaming of Green

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  We're halfway to the weekend! Hope your week has gone well so far.  I am popping in this morning to share a card I made for a couple of challenges that caught my eye.  A lot have the "Spring" or "Green" theme right now and this fit right in.
 
Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Old Olive and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey, but I can't remember which pad.  The gorgeous image is another from Mitzi Sato-Wiuff from her AuroraWings Etsy shop. It's called Flower Ballerina.  I printed it on Hammermill Color Digital Cover Stock and colored it with my Copics.  I added Icicle Stickles here and there for some sparkle.  A few pearl flourishes, three Wild Orchid Crafts lilies and a triple-loop seam binding bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: YR23, YR27, R59
Greens: YG21, YG25, YG17, YG67, G94

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Crafting For All Season #72 (spring into Spring)
Creative Fingers Challenge #25 (anything goes)
Crafts and Me Challenge #146 (anything goes)
Stamps by AuroraWings March FB Challenge (shades of green)

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!
