MFT - Part Deux

Back in MN from my trip to New York, where I was temporarily spoiled (yesterday) with spring-like temps in the mid 50s.  Landing back in Minne this morning, I was reminded it's still winter here ~ but thoughts of spring aren't far away.  No better way to combat a cold, gray day than spend some time making a card!

Being Cute Is What I Do - MFT
Today's post idea comes from a challenge site that's new to me, called the Friday Mash-Up!  (I love the name!)  They are celebrating their 100th challenge by having people choose one of their previous challenges.  I took the "mash-up" part seriously and combined a few.  Challenge #21 was dry embossing (a "regular" in my card making), and Challenge #32 was a girlie theme and favorite technique (Copic coloring).  Quite a mash, eh?!?!

The card uses one more of the MFT kids I colored last week . . .  in this one, I focused on creating the idea of ripples in her top in my coloring.  I cropped the image and framed her with a PTI die.

Copics Used:
Hair: E50, 51, 53, 57
Dress:  Y11, 13 15
Skin:  E00, 11, 13, R20

The die cut flower with the button in the middle mirrors the flowered background paper.  Don't the soft colors of this card make you think of spring?
