Colour Challenge

I haven't joined many online card challenges, but I thought it was about time I joined the fun and became a little more active...the thing about challenges is they really stretch you creativity and help you think outside the square. The current colour challenge over at is "Pink & Yellow"....every 2nd Tuesday they have a colour challenge...

Upload your PINK & YELLOW Challenge card to the 'Link System' on the blog - you must post by NOVEMBER 22.
GIFT CERTIFICATE FOR $25.00 from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS!!!! you all know me and if the colour "Pink" is included I'm sure to be in on the "playtime"!!

I received Sleeping Baby Tilda in the mail this week - so it was a perfect choice for my card....I had a little trouble choosing my Copic colours for this project. Although, my collection of them has grown heaps in the last few months, I discovered I'm a little light on in the colours of pink and yellow! Oh well! - I might just have to go shopping again LOL !

Copics Used:
Skin: E50, E51, E53 - Cheeks: RV20
Bonnet & Pants: RV02, RV10
Top & Pillow: Y11, Y13

I used some Clear Kindy Glitz in the wings - then to make up my card I embellished with some flowers, rhinestones, leaf punches, gingham ribbon and the lace doiley punch from Martha Stewart.

...just a little "close-up" pic!

This card was such fun to make, so I thought I would come up with a boy version as well.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E51 - Cheeks RV20
Bonnet & Pants: B00, B02
Top & Pillow: Y00, Y11

I also added highlights of Gold Spica pen and some clear Kindy Glitz

....looking forward to my next challenge :)
