Fussy & Fancy Challenge 28 - Mindy's Sketch

Good morning, peeps!
This is my first post as DT member for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog so how exciting is that?! Our lovely sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop and I have used their fabulous image Basket Full of Love, which you can find here because, now that Christmas is well and truly over, that love season is upon us again!

and here is Mindy's sketch, which was wonderful to work with:

This is another fairly clean and simple design for me with no flowers - how did I manage that? Have I found a new style? I suspect that there will be the return of the flowers some time soon since I have drawers full of them and more on the way!!
The DPs are some oldies but goodies from my stash and the ribbon is from the boys at Fantastic Ribbons. The group of hearts in the bottom right-hand corner is a Magnolia stamp, the sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set (I think!) and the heart charm is from the Hobby House.
The image was coloured with Copics, Promarkers and Prismas and here are the Copic/Promarker colours:
Basket: E31/33/35/37/51
Hearts: R20/22/24/29
Flowers: Promarkers Blossom, Pink Carnation, Rose Pink
Flower centres: Y00/02
Bow and basket lining: B21/23/24
Leaves: YG11/13/25
I really enjoyed my first Fussy and Fancy Challenge project and I hope you'll join in with us.
Until the next time.
