Pink & Green...again!

Hi everyone...OMG, I can't believe the weekend has flown by already!! (hehehe...I say that EVERY Sunday!) I did get a chance to hang out with my handsome hubby, tho...and I did a bit of crafting too! So, all in all, it was a fun weekend!! A young friend of mine recently had some surgery, so I thought I'd make a "feel better soon" card for her. I used one of the Tildas from the 2010 Wedding Collection. I rummaged around and found some pretty DPs in my stash (they're from GCD Studios, the Cloisonne` Collection...I picked it up at Michael's a few months ago)...and guess what? Like so many of my recent cards, this one features lots of pink and green!! My husband tells me that I choose those colors because I'm a "Preppie" at heart! (I think NOT!)'s my recipe:

Cardstock: White from my stash; Certainly Celery & Pretty in Pink from SU
Copics: E11, 00, 000, 0000 (skin); R21 & R00 (cheeks); YR21, 20, E25, 99, & 33 (hair...this is my new fave combo for hair!); G24, 21, 20 (jumper); RV 25, 23, 21, 000 (boots, buttons, hairbows, sash); C2 & 0 (T-shirt & petticoat).
Embellies: Glossy accents (boots), Cotton Candy Stickles, Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts), ribbon, charm, doily, & faux pearls - my stash.

I also used Nestabilities, MS lace edge punch, & my Cuttlebug.

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at the "trouble" I've been up to. Must run making a special b-day card for my best little "boyfriend"...our grandson, Brody, has his 6th birthday in a week! YIKES! He'll be in FIRST GRADE!! It seems like just yesterday I was cradling him in my arms! See y'all soon...Pat
