Live the Life you Love

I am having withdrawal symptoms today!! Sadly, I have had to step down from the DT at Totally Papercrafts - what with the house sale and my new job, I just can't keep up right now. They are an AWESOME bunch over there though - and if you fancy a spell on THE best team, play along with this week's challenge and put DT after your name :-)

As soon as I saw this image I knew it would be perfect for my daughter Annabel's birthday card. I did intend to use much darker, brunette colours - but last week Annabel decided to have blonde highlights put in her hair!! 
Of course she did!
Well, that sure tested my Copic skills :-)

I've also added a few touches of bling here and there and used my fav sentiment, - Live the Life you Love - which was a freebie from a magazine.

Truly Scrumptious - Pretty in Pink
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Bling it On
Crafts and Me - Fabulous Flowers (there are a few on there girls - on the DP - but if that's not enough just delete my entry - no worries ;-)
Aud Sentiments - Any Sentiment

6 x 6 On the Edge, Petal Point Card Blank.
Digi Image, Crafts and Me Violet - coloured with Copics and Diamond Dust.
DP - Papermania, Regency.  Martha Stewart Lace Doily Punch.
XCut Heart Die.  Sentiment was a mag. freebie.   Gems.  Lace. Ribbon
