My first C.C. Designs card!

Hi everyone!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. My mojo and desire to craft has been severely depleted these last few days. I've had the kids home sick - yep - all 3 of them! And hubby and myself seem to be battling a cold. However, today my head has felt a little clearer so I took myself down to my craft room and was determined to colour up these gorgeous little cuties that I received from my dearest blogging friend, Christine. Thanks hun, you really are so generous!
I pulled out my prisma pencils for this image although I coloured her face and any visible skin with my copics. I love this aqua/violet colour combo - it feels so fresh and uplifting - not like the -23oc temps we've experienced today!! I followed the sketch by Aud over at Friday Sketchers today - I love it! I'm also putting this card in for the Totally Papercrafts challenge this week which is 'Buttons & Bows'.
The dp is from my stash and I used the MS Daisy border punch. I added some violet adhesive pearls and adhered a ribbon and violet button with linen thread for the final touch. The back piece of cardstock is embossed and was gifted to me so not sure which line/company it comes from. I want to say CTMH but I'm not sure!
Well, there you have it! I have projects that I need to complete so I best kept trudging on forward and hope my mojo wakes up! Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving your much appreciated comments! I hope you all enjoy a wonderful start to the weekend!
