Card Details 
Digi images (Saturated Canary), Green & pink pattern paper (lawn fawn), sweet dots (Vs sweetideas), rhinestones, twine, prismacolor pencils to color both images.

Some of my Coloring Tips 
- Pick a lighting source when your coloring to help you understand where the shadow is on the images clothes and skin. Look at the folds in your shirts and skirts.
- I color dark to light. Which means coloring with the darker color then the lighter color. 
- To blend color pencils I use the prismacolor colorless blender and/or the copic colorless blender. 
- Don't be afraid to mix coloring from different families. Orange and Red or Yellow and Purple.
-Practice, practice, practice.
- Have FUN.
