Pearls in My Hair - ADFD

I have some exciting news to share with you today.  I've been invited to Guest Design for the Copics Europe Blog. Thank you so much for the opportunity – I still can’t believe it! There is so much talent on this blog and they share a wealth of knowledge. Thank you again ….I truly am honoured.

I made this card several weeks ago when I knew I was going to GD.  I chose a digital stamp from A Day For Daisies called Pearls in My Hair.   What a dream to colour.    I always start with the skin first, then the hair, dress and lastly the birds.

Here are the copics I used:

Skin:  E11, E01,  E00, E000, E0000
Dress:  BG000, BG78, BG57, BG49
Hair:  E57, E59, E49
Birds:  E18, YR14, YR31
Background:  BG0000, BG000

Design Paper:  Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection

Entering the following challenges:
Craft Your Days Away #47 - Bingo (pearls, ribbon, glitter)
Inspire Me Fridays #63 - Anything Goes
Stampin with the Dragon - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Colour it Up
Pixie Challenge #131  - Bird Theme

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs, Pat K.

Hi Pat!
I just popped over to say thank you so much for your comment and wowwweee, am I glad I did! I love this card! Your coloring is breathtaking! I do have one question. You listed that you used E57,59,49 for the skin and that's the same colors you used for the hair. Are these correct? I'm just curious because I am looking for a new skin combo, but I don't see the skin being as dark as the hair so I was wondering how you did that. LOL! Also, congratulation on your new DT spot...that's fantsastic news!! Oh and I really love the material of the bow, it matches the silkiness of her dress so perfectly. :)
