A New Challenge over at Besties.

Good morning friends.

Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I am gutted. Supposed to be going to see Evie today but I have such a terrible cough I can't go. She is doing so well and now weighs 3lb 1oz and is more adorable by the day. Wish she didn't live o far away. Oh well, only one thing for it - crafty time.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Besties where the theme is everyone's favourite - Anything Goes.  The winner of this challenge will win 5 digi's . We will also have a DT favourite who will be invited to be a guest designer for one of our forthcoming chalenges. On the Besties challenge site is information on where you can purchase these adorable images - though be warned, you may very well be spoiled for choice.
This image was not my original choice but I made such a bad job of the colouring I had to start again. I chose an image which was not so time consuming to colour and I have to say I think she is gorgeous.

     I have coloured her with copics.
Hair W5, W4, W1
Skin Ell and Pro marker Blush
Eyes BG000
Shadow around the image Polychromo's light phthalo blue and Cobalt Blue.
The Dark Pink and Light Pink flowers behind the large daisy are from The Range but I cannot find the info on their site to reference them.
The gems are from my stash. 
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Embellishment Crazy
Corrosive Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (flowers, sentiment, layers)
Create with TLC - Show it off
The Crazy Challenge - (B) Bestie, Butterflies, Button (behind a flower), Bling
My time to Craft - Butterflies
Paper Creator's Crafts - Pink or Blue
Hobby Cutz Challenges - Bingo - Embossing Free Pink
The Squirrel and the Fox - Pink for Breast Cancer
Thank you so much for visiting and welcome to my new followers - it is lovely to see you here.
I will be visiting your blogs very shortly.  Have a lovely week.
