My first card as DT member for ABC challenges!

Hello everyone long time no speak! Its been a tad hectic here and what with half term I've not spent that much time in my little crafty abode.  The kiddies are back at school next week so I'm hoping normal creative mode will resume when its a little more peaceful around here!
Anyway, I have some amazing news to share with you all today and that is I have been asked to join the fabulous team over at ABC Challenges.  Well I needed all of two seconds to answer that one and I am thrilled to become part of a fab team and very grateful they have given me this opportunity.  Thank you so much!!
So moving on I am here to show you my first creation as an ABC DT member and for this challenge we are on 'O for open'.   Yes its 'anything goes' so a nice easy one so no excuses not to join in and we are being sponsored by the fabby Marker Pop and Paper Shelter so even more reason to join in! 
I have used a gorgeous image from Paper Shelter called Spring Swing II isn't she sweet with her long flowing hair and pretty skirt. 
Image:  Paper Shelter 'Spring Swing II'
Medium:  copics
Papers:  First Edition 'Spring Drop'
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts
all matted onto cardstock from Paper Mill Direct
As you can see there is a tag slipped in behind the image with a die cut message on.  Everything has had the distressed treatment with Tim Holtz distress ink walnut stain.

The usual close up to show you the fab image.  She has been coloured completely with copics.

Copics used
Dress and some flowers:  RV21, RV23, RV25
Flowers:  BG11, BG13, YR0000, YR00, YR02
Leaf:  YG11, YG13, YG67
Hair:  E50, E53, E33, E35, E37
Okay time for me to toodle on I think.  I hope you are all well and have been making the most of the sunshine as who knows how long it will last!!!
Take care folks and have a great weekend wherever you are.
