Being Cute Is What I Do

I finally got my Color Throwdown card done! Weee!
This weeks colors are:


I love these colors but I have never used all of them together before. But I found just the right papers I wanted that had all the right colors and shades.


I used MFT "Being Cute is What I Do" set that I paper pieced with some MME papers and colored in with Copics. I used some paper from October afternoon as the background papers with Bazzil Basics "Cajun" CS. I used a Spellbinder Square as my image base and then used a  Spellbinder Lacy Square to cut my inverted scallops out. I used remnant ribbons and pearls, then Flower Soft to finish it all off.

I had so much fun with the colors and trying out my Copics to color the skin in, for the first time. I honestly need a few more "filler" colors to fill in those skin blending gaps, but I'm pretty happy with my first skin coloring attempt :)
Please forgive the grainy pic, I had to take it at night with low light and our camera has grainy pics when the light is low.
