Pearls In My Hair - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
That flipping pink thing!!! I literally gave myself a headache with trying to solve the driver problem yesterday I was rubbing masses of 4Head across my brow while cursing loudly lol. I am not even going to look at it today, as it refuses to behave then I shall treat it like a naughty child and ignore it until I have the patience to tackle it again, & me being so stubborn I WILL sort it out lol.

Moving on to nicer non pink things, it's new challenge day at
& this fortnight our challenge is

As we had Mother's Day in March in the UK I have made a birthday card for a special lady.
Ingredients -
Image - A Day For Daisies, Pearls In My Hair
Medium - Copics
Papers - Pion
Flowers - Hobbycraft, Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid
Pearls - Melissa Frances
Other - string of pearls & Cameo, Wild Orchid,  MS PATP & classic 3 in 1 butterfly punch
I fell in love with this beautiful image as soon as I saw it & straight away I was thinking "I wonder what she's like to colour" & it was a dream, so much easier than I expected.
 At the moment I am enjoying colouring various different images, as much as I love my usual Magnolia's I just fancied a bit of change to practice my colouring, and I have coloured masses of gorgeous Saturated Canary images too which I need to get around to making the cards for but I haven't even inked up my poor neglected adorable Magnolia stamp club yet, gawd I'm a slacker lol.

Copic colours used - 
skin - E11, E01, E00, E000, E0000, hair - E49, E47, E35, E31, E30, dress - RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, W6, W4, birds - W6, W4, W2, W00
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
 Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - birthday, A Day For Daisies - calico or small print paper, Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - bingo (middle row across, pearls, punches & flowers), Crafty Ann's - stitching, Fairy Fun Friday's - flowers, Inspire Me Friday's - anything goes, The Poodles Parlour - anything goes, Aud's Sentiments - anything goes, Crop Stop - to the birds, Southern Girls Challenge - get your girly on, Little Darlings - flowers, Celebrate The Occasion - birthday + ribbon, Creative Card Crew - ribbon, Scrap Creations - it's a girl thing, Ribbon Carousel - anything goes
That's me done peeps & it's a wet & windy Sunday here so I having a nice chill out day.
Thanks for stopping by
