New Challenge at The ABC Challenge

Hello everyone and a very happy Thursday to you I hope you are all well.
Today its time for another new challenge over at The ABC Challenges and I have my DT  card to share with you all.  We are now on the letter T so that's T for Thank you folks.  We are being sponsored by Lili of the Valley and The Paper Shelter this challenge so two fabby sponsors this time.  We'd love to see you join in and have a chance at winning - you've got to be in it to win it folks!  As usual there are some gorgeous creations from my teamies so do pop over and take a peep at the lovely inspiration.

So moving on here is my card.  I was given the chance to play with this adorable image - isn't she a cutie.  This is 'Lets go to Sleep' and I have coloured her with my copics and cut her out before raising her up slightly with glue gel. 

Image:  The Paper Shelter 'Lets go to Sleep'
Medium:  copics
Papers:  Making Memories 'Meg' (from really old stash!)
Dies:  Spellbinders 'Fleur de Lis' rectangles
The side view up next where you can see I have decorated the inside to compliment the front.

Lastly the close up.  Fairly happy with my colouring on this one.  Is it just me or does anyone else struggle colouring with the 'BV' copics I always seem to have trouble blending them together but I got there in the end.  I also went with a bit of a different hair colour I normally go for a darkish brown but tried a blondish colour combo this time and I really quite like it so that's one I'll be using again. 
List of copics
Face/body:  E000, E11, E21, R20, R81
Clothes:  BV02, BV04, BV08/BG11, BG13, BG15
Hair:  E50, E53, E31, E33, E35
Puppy:  E50, E53, E31, E33, E35, E37
I made this card following the great sketch over at The Sweet Stop so would like to enter my card into that challenge.
That's all from me today.  If the weather holds we're off to the fair this afternoon, well I think we'll go whatever the weather what's a bit of rain when there's candyfloss to be had!!!
Enjoy your day my friends, take care.
