Grateful

Hi All!  Well, holy crap...have ya missed me?!?  Probably not as much as I've missed you :)  What can I say sometimes life just gets in the way of everything I actually want to do...oh well, I'm back now and don't plan on going anywhere any time soon so unfortunately for you- you're stuck with me!

I'm sure you'll be shocked to see that I've again used a Saturated Canary image but I just can't resist these cuties.  This is Cornelia and I thought she'd be perfect for a special Thanksgiving card.  I've colored her with my beloved Copics and felt a little more comfortable with shading in her facial features this time, like her nose.  I'm going to continue to practice though!  I used the sketch over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and also wanted to play over at Saturated Canary Challenge which is 1 image, 2 papers, and 3 embellishments- I used pearls, a tag and flowers.  I can tell how much my style continues to change because, for the first time, I actually had a hard time sticking to just 3 embellishments :)  But I do love how the image stands out with this more simple layout.  I hope you enjoy and I promise to be back soon with some Christmas cards!
Copics:
Skin- E00, E11, E13, E15, R22
Eyes- E49, N3, N5, N7
Hair- N1, N5, N7, N9
Clothes- E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E49, R37, R59
Basket- E43, E44, E47, E49, B93, B95
