Everyone Deserves a Fairytale

Hi everyone and Happy Friday :)  This is my second post today, if you are looking for my Inky Impressions post, please scroll down to the post below this one. 

Last weekend, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps had a huge celebration over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog.  Not only was it World Card Making Day, but it was also Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Birthday! :)  There were lots of challenges to celebrate but the one that really caught my eye was the Birthday Challenge because by entering this challenge, you have a chance to become a permanent Krafty Girl DT member, which would be a dream come true for me! :)  If you've been around my blog for a while now, you know I LOVE Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps :)  I use them as often as I can :)  So, I just had to enter this challenge and give it a shot.  Without further delay, here is my card :)

For my entry, I just had to ink up this amazing image.  She's called Lucy and she has got to be one of my all time favorite images (although I say that about all of them :) ).  The challenge is to create a birthday project.  Well, in my household, the best birthday gifts are books so I thought this image would be perfect for the challenge :)  Growing up, I always asked for books for birthdays and holidays and my mom was wonderful at picking out the best books :)  My husband got me a Kindle one year for my birthday . . . best birthday gift ever! :)  Anyway, I of course colored my image with copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Shirt: R81, R83, R85, R89
Shorts: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Book pages: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
Books: R35, R37, R39, R59; E23, E25, E29
Shadow: W2, W4, W6, Blender

I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from My Mind's Eye (Blush collection).  The die cut was made using a Memory Box Die.  I added a ribbon and a jewel bling (from Michael's) to the center of the ribbon.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment comes with the image, I cut each word out for a different look.  Here are a few more pictures:

What do you think?  Well, I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed :)  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day! :)
