Thinking Of You - card

I know what you are probably thinking...

Hey Annie, all of your cards are colored the same way!  Why don't you mix it up a bit, silly girl?

heh heh...  well, I'd love to.  But, you see, I only have a limited amount of Copic markers so every color gets used often.  I'm researching to find the next set of colors to buy, in lighter shades that will still go along with the ones I have.  They are quite the investment, aren't they?  But I love my Copics!  If anyone has any favorite lighter-color Copic color combinations that you just love, let me know!  I'm looking for some softer yellows for hair coloring and softer pinks and blues. Maybe some greens, too. 

Have I mentioned I've been coloring all this week without any colorless blender?  I'm completely out! Ack!  How dangerous and adventurous am I?  :)

Isn't this little crawling gal adorable? She was a freebie digi image (awesome!) from {MILK COFFEE} and I totally fell in love with her.

I inked her up with Copics and added a few highlights with a white gel pen.  I cut out the card shape with the scalloped square nestabilities die.  The DP's are from DCWV and K+Company.  The flowers and twine are from my stash.  The sentiment and sentiment frame are from the Some Odd Girl clear stamp set called "Sweet Thinkin' Mae".

I'm entering her into the following challenges:

{SIMON SAYS STAMP CHALLENGE BLOG} - Favorite tool - Big Shot!
{STAMPTACULAR SUNDAY CHALLENGE BLOG} - photo inspiration - yellow + flowers

What a cutie!! Love the bright colors!

Copics are CRAZY expensive! I don't get why, but I slowly add to my colors every week when I have a coupon.
