Tiny Blessings

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope your week is going along well so far!  We're halfway to the weekend and it's a beautiful Spring day here!  I am popping in to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing when I have the chance.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Turquoise Sea and the patterned papers are from the Glitz Designs Cashmere Dame 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Ladybug by Joanne Schempp for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Aqua, Crystal, Star Dust and Yellow Stickles for some added sparkle.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I didn't add any other embellishments so the image could take center stage.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair: E21, E35, E37, E57
Ground: E41, E42, E43, E44
Grass and Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG25, YG17, YG67
Blue Dress: BG000, BG01, BG53, BG57
Blue Flowers and Spider Web Crown: B12, B14, B16
Wings: BG000, G00
Ladybug: R22, R35, R37, R46, R59, C3, C5, C7, C9
Lantern: YR21, YR23, YR24, Y11
