Color Me Wonderful!

Hi All!  WOW- I just have to say a gigantic 'Thank you!' to everyone for the amazing comments I've gotten and to all my new followers!  And to Krista from over at Saturated Canary for the shout out since I know many of you have found your way here courtesy of the challenge blog

I've been dying to get this image, Color Me Wonderful (a freebie for subscribing to the Designed To Color magazine), on a card since I colored her up.  I love Krista's images because they are so much freakin' fun to color- I mean how can you go wrong with some rockin' clothes, gorgeous hair and those huge eyes right?  Plus this little sweetie is holding Copics so naturally I was in love with her from the very start, lol.  I picked my color pallete based on these pretty papers from the MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up paper pad...I just love how the pink, teal and splash of yellow compliment each other.  The rest of the card came together quite quickly- I just added some of my favorite things like bling and flowers; and I just picked up some of these wooden tickets from Prima so I had to add one of those for good measure :)  I try not to over do it too much because in the end I want my image to shine through.  I hope you like the finished card and truly, thank you again for stopping by this little blog of mine and for all the wonderful comments- they really do mean the world to me!
