Happy Birthday

Hi again!  I'm back with a quick second post today to share a card I finished up for a few challenges.  This one took me forever to color, but I finally got it on a card!

Here it is:

My card base and mats are GKD Fresh Asparagus and the patterned paper is from the Best Creations, Inc. A Walk in the Garden 6x6 pack.  The gorgeous image is Girl With Pansies from AuroraWings.  You can find it in Mitzi's Etsy shop here.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Yellow Stickles to the pansy centers and some Star Dust Stickles to the "bubbles".    I also added Liquid Pearls to her earrings.    The sentiment is stamped.  Some wrinkled silk ribbon, a double-loop bow and a few pearls from my stash finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the image:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E39, E59, E49
Leaves: G21, G94, G99, Y35
Pansies: V1, V05, V06, V09, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y18
Blue flowers and bubbles: BV000, BV02, BV13, BV08
Butterfly: Y18, Y15, Y12, BG72, BG75, BG78

Thanks for stopping by!  I've got a couple more things to get done this afternoon and then I'll be around to visit.
