A little Princess...

There is a colour challenge going on at Tiddly Inks at the moment that is certainly challenging!  I took one look at it and thought... hhhmmm not too sure about those colours, but I decided to play along anyway.  Since I had a bit of time this morning, I had a quick look around and decided to combine three challenges:

Tiddly Inks - Photo inspiration
Mad for Markers - Copic coloured embellishments
Charisma Cardz Challenge #20- Birthdays in Pink

Here is the inspiration photo from Tiddly Inks:

And here is my card:

This is a little bit pinker and frillier than my usual cards, but you have try new things every now and then!  The image is Everyday Princess from Tiddly Inks and it is coloured with copics (see details below).  The papers are from Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye.  

I coloured the roses and leaves on the doily (purchased at the Carrefour in Antibes) with copics (see below) and I coloured the cream seam binding with R20 to match the skirt.

Here are the copics I used for the image:

Happy Sunday!  I'm off to Antibes tomorrow to do my fire fighting course... wish me fun!
