Sweet Tilda with Hawaii Flower

Things are slowly starting to return to normal here... I have almost everyone healthy, yay!  We sure are looking forward to the kids' Spring Break (which starts tomorrow), and their training break which starts on Sunday.  A week of no chauffeuring... sounds like heaven!

I did manage to eke out a bit of time yesterday evening to finish off a card.  As soon as I saw this gorgeous Tilda with Hawaii Flower, I knew I had to have her!

I've coloured her with my Copic markers (see colour list below) and paired her up with some Echo Park papers.  I finished her off with some dew drops and Prima flowers, as well as a couple buttons from my stash.
Copic Colours:
Skin- E000, 00, 93
Hair- Y11, 21, 26, 28, E97, 99
Dress- BG10, 11, 13, 15
Flower- R81, 83, 85, YG13, 17
Shoes- E30, 31, 33, 35

Challenges:
Just Magnolia - Favourite colour combo (aqua plus pink)
Stamp Something - Something Sweet
All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge - Spring + flowers+ pastels + touch of brown (her shoes & in the paper)
Etsy Inspired - inspired by this gorgeous shoulder purse bag from Dollbirdies
Sweet Stop Sketches - sketch + sweet
Stamp & Create challenge - spring
Pile It On - Bling (dew drops)
Bling It On - Anything Goes
Copic Creations - blues
