Pollycraft Monday - Colour Inspiration

Good morning! It's Pollycraft Monday today!  Yay! Now that we have changed to fortnightly challenges, I miss my Pollycraft posts on the middle Monday.

This fortnight the lovely Sheena has set the challenge theme and she has chosen a beautiful photo for us to use as inspiration.  Here it is:

How pretty is that?! Our sponsor this fortnight is Bunny Zoe's Crafts and they are giving the winner a £10 voucher to spend in the store!

Also, did you know that our top three favourites using a Pollycraft image each challenge receive a free Pollycraft digi of their choice from the shop?

Head on over to the Pollycraft Challenge blog to check out the details of the challenge and to see my teamies' fabulous creations!

Here's my card using Celeste Amberglow - Heartstrings:
The papers are all from the Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two range.  The ribbon and twine are from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is a sticker from SRM.  I have coloured Celeste with copics (see details below).    I had a bit of trouble with her face... I think that either my E00 is running low on ink or my E11 was dirty... will have to sort that out, but I am waiting for a delivery of re-inkers.  I am also currently trying to convince my poor husband that I need to complete my set of copics... only 68 to go (not including the fluoros, but I can't think of a use for them)!

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox: One for the girls
Two Sisters Challenge: Make it girlie
CES Challenges (Final Challenge): Anything Goes
Crafty Mess Challenge: Pink and Cute

Have a lovely day!
