ABC Challenge - X is for Xtra Special

Time flies when you are having fun and it's the 15th of November before you know it. Today is time for another new challenge at ABC Challenges and were heading towards the end of the alphabet. Today's challenge is X is for Xtra Special we want you to join us by sharing creations made for a special occasion, like a birthday, anniversary or maybe just a card for someone special.

This challenge is sponsored by Kenny K and the design team has been busily creating some wonderful inspiration for you. Here is my card. It's not my usual colours, because I tend to add more bright colours, but my special friend is a fan of the pastel lemon and pink, and the background paper seemed to suit the Kenny K image: Farmer's Daughter

For my card, I printed the Farmer's Daughter digi using my Canon inkjet printer onto Copic Xpress card stock. She is coloured with my copics. The colours I used are: skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, eyes: B00, C9, hair: E59, E57, E55, E53, E51, hat: Y28, Y26, Y23, Y21, Y00, clothes: R85, R83, R81, V0000, Y11, Y00, tree: E40, E42, E44, leaves: G82, G20

I added a sentiment, a tree diecut that I cut out of Copix Xpress card and coloured with my copics, some ribbon, flowers and some pretty butterfly diecuts.

Here is a close look at my image:
