Color Me Creative Challenge #92 - Pretty Pastels

This Color Me Creative's Pretty Pastels challenge was an interesting one for me because even though I love pink, I rarely use pastels in my card-making!  Finding pastel colored BG paper wasn't easy.  Luckily I had this pale pink sheet from Lasting Impressions - and it was a perfect choice.  The image is a big-eyed girl named Autumn Mindy from our sponsor, Art by Miran.    I love the versatility of this digi; it certainly doesn't have to be an autumn scene.  I had fun coloring her hair and playing with shading her eyes.  The card also features two new toys I've added to my craft supplies - stitched dies (Anytime Tags and Stitched Mats- Rectangles) from Lil' Inkers Designs.  Love 'em!

Copics used:
Skin - E000, 21, 11 & R20
Hair - E50, 51, 53, 55, 44
Leaves - YG01, 67 & G40, 43
Eyes - B0000, 41, 45
Scarf - RV0000, 00, 21
Coat - C0, 01
