Oh Happy Day

Hi All!  Wow, I just need to say a quick thank you for the fabulous support everyone gave of my coloring video!  To say I was blown away is an understatement :)  Because of the great response I will definitely be putting some more together and I'm completely open to suggestions about what you all might like to see!

Right, moving on to my card now :)  I've been selling my cards for some time now and have some 'regulars'...one in particular gives me a list of birthdays for each month about a year ahead of time and I keep it on a white board so I know how many are needed when.  October just happens to be a busy month and when I was setting out to start coloring some of the images I realized I hadn't done a Breast Cancer Awareness card yet and, considering the person receiving it works in that field, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to make one before the month was up.  So I printed off this cute image from Some Odd Girl called Pink Ribbon Mae and colored her up with my Copics to match some pretty pink papers from the MME Be Happy line.  I decided to use the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout and then embellished with the usual suspects- some flowers, bling and a sentiment sticker from Jillibean Soup.  So in the end I got two birds with one stone- a pretty Breast Cancer Awareness themed card and a birthday card all rolled into one :)


Copics:
Skin- E0000, E000, E00, E11, R30, R21, BV31, BV34
Hair- E50, E51, E53, E57
Clothes- R30, R32, R35
