Copic Colour Challenge #56 --- Shades of Lavender, Green, and Blue on a Whiff of Joy Sketch

The Copic Colour Challenge last week was a doozy!  I had fun with it though.  This week's color combo is so lovely and I got to use a new stamp, new paper, a new sketch and ribbon I've been dying to use.  Here is the color combo:

Such pretty colors!  I actually had to substitute BV01 Viola for the BV02 and G00 Jade Green for the G02.  Then I used this fun sketch from the Whiff of Joy Inspirations and Tutorial blog.

And here is my card:
The image is from Whiff of Joy's new Blooming Spring stamp kit.  It is only available at stores so check with your favorite store and if they don't have it whimper, cry, stomp your feet --- anything to get them to stock it! :)  Along with the colors in the combo I used other shades for depth.  Here are the deets:  Blouse:  BV01, BV04, BV0000; Skirt: B32, B34, B21; Apron G00, G12; Hair: E07, E08, E09, E000; Skin: E000, E21

The beautiful designer paper is from the new Penny Lane collection by My Mind's Eye.  The flowered strip looks like DP, but is actually sheer ribbon attached to a piece of aqua card stock to show off the flowers.  I love this ribbon and this was a perfect place to use it! I also made a matching envelope with the template that comes with the Martha Stewart scoring board.

How about some detail pics?
 This card will be going to a friend for Easter, but I'm not telling who!
I'm so glad you stopped by today.  I hope your weekend has been restful and your Sunday joyful!

Oh my, isn't she lovely and she is coloured beautifully, Barb. I love that DP in the background (fav colour, right Barb?) - awesome job, my friend.
