Pink and Green - Clean and Simple!

Good morning, peeps!
Yes, that's the title of the challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best and, as you can see, I most certainly stayed with that theme!

I've used the lovely 'Spring Gathering' image,which you can find in the store here. I really had great fun colouring all the folds in her lovely dress!
The whole card design is very much a change for me in that it doesn't look like a florist's shop window! It's simply finished with ribbon and DP from my stash (I think the DP may be Anna Griffin but really not sure) and pearls from the Hobby House. I distressed all the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress ink. Of course my DH asked me if it was meant to be ripped! The corners are cut with a Cuttlebug die.
Copics used:
Skin: E000/00/21, R11/20
Hair: E50/51/53/33
Dress: R11/20/21/22, C1
Flowers: YG11, Y00/13, BG11/13
Grass/leaves: G20/24, YG67, G82
I hope you ike this one, peeps and that you'll join us for this week's challenge because pink and green are such a wonderful colour combo.
See you again soon with another challenge but, in the meantime, take care of yourselves!
