Hi Peeps..

I can't believe how fast time flies.... and here we are at In The Pink time again - and wowwww it's our SECOND birthday!!  Now....  I know I did a nice pale pink card just recently, soooooo I thought I'd go to the opposite extreme this time..  and as we've got an ANYTHING GOES theme to celebrate our birthday... I went all out!

I chose to use a Bestie for my card - meet Sophia Rose from Sherri Baldy Besties  She was a joy to colour...  but, I have to admit, I didn't enjoy colouring her hair so much!! Sooo many curls - and as I'm just starting doing the hair colouring classes with Alyce at Kit and Clowder - and haven't got to the curly hair lesson yet, I feel I may have gone a tad astray with my highlight/shadow bits!  Ah well.... don't look too closely (and shhhhh don't tell Alyce!!)  I think I've conquered straight hair texture.... but curls are yet to come!
Here's what I used:
Paper: Fancy Pants Key Lime Pie Papers - Heavenly
Dies: Nellies Multiframes Rectangle 3 (includes the scallops), Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Border
Ribbon, Glitter and Gems from Stash
Sentiment done on PC
Colouring: Copics...
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Clothes: RV00, RV52, RV55, RV09, G20, G21, G82
Eyes: B93
Shoes E33, E35, E57
(if I put my colours here I remember for next time! LOL)

Hope you like what you see and you'll say hello so I know you've been here...  then I can return the favour!

And I'd love you to pop over to In The Pink and join in our birthday fun!!

Big hugs

This is just gorgeous! Your Sophia Rose is coloured so perfectly! Love it! :)

Kat W said...

I LOVE this hot pink and the fancy fold design is brilliant :-)
Your hair colouring still looks pretty good, and at least when you have done the curly hair class, you can colour her up again and see the improvement ;-)
The shading all around her is great - really makes her look more, um, 3D!

Big hugs, Kat xx
