For A Special Lady

Sassy Dtudios Designs is sponsoring a challenge for All Sorts Challenge. You need to make a project or card for A Special Lady! I made a card for my sister. To be honest my sister is my best friend, besides my husband of course! Even though we live a few thousand mile apart she is who I think of first to talk to. She has been there for me over the years...well, after we grew up a bit...and was my maid of honor in both of my weddings! OK I am babbling...can you babble when you're typing?

Anyway check out the challenge and the rules here.

I decided to use "Mulan" from Sassy's newest release. I think she is perfect for my Special Lady card. Just look at the soft and sweet look in her face! Perfect for this card.
Here is the card I made:

I colored her with copics and used TC Blossomwood by K & Co. for my papers. The strip in the center I cut out with a border punch from Martha Stewart. For the flowers I felt I wanted a color that would match Mulan's shirt, so I colored on a small strip and punched out some flowers from another Martha Stewart punch. I stacked, glued and then added a small sead bead in the center.

Copics I Used
Skin:  Eoo, E000, E0000
Hair:  C9, C6, C4, C3
Clothes:  R31, R59, R46, R29 R0000 & T0 all over  E40 w/ T0 all over on shirt
Eyes:  YG06
Cheeks: R20

Hope you liked it. Here are some close ups.
