Celebrate Every Day

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  Mine has been busy so far, but the weather is gorgeous and that makes a big difference!  I'm on my way out so this will have to be brief, but I'm here to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing.  I haven't had much time for extra projects so I was happy to get this one done.

Here it is:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park This & That 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Pricilla Pie from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's store here.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added "pearls" to her hair and jewelry with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  I added a bit of Yellow Stickles the center of the flower in her hair and the ring on her finger.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I used a Martha Stewart Edger Punch for the horizontal panel.  A turquoise crocheted flower and a few Recollections roses finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Turquoise: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49
Deep Rose: R81, R83, R85, R89
Gold/Yellow: Y21, YR23, E15

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be by to visit when I get home tonight or tomorrow morning.
