Annabelle Sweet Melon made like Lou!

I am so excited to enter my first card into the Tiddly Inks challenge. I found this site a couple of months ago and purchased a few digital images and have been following the site to get some tips on colouring up the images. Today was a public holiday in Victoria so it gave me plenty of time to play and a 20% off sale at a local scrapbook shop sealed the deal! LOL

Anyway the challenge is to "Make it like Lou" layout, colours, image any thing you choose so I decided to go with layout.

Here is my card using the very cute Anne Belle Sweet Melon: (sorry the picture came out a bit dark)

The papers are from Imaginisce and I used the coloured spots on the background piece to choose the matting colours. Stampin' Ups! Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Polk Dot Parade SP in Marina Blue match perfectly.
 Pro Markers are still fairly new to me although I have had them for a few years I don't pull them out too often because I always tend to SU! stuff instead.

Pro Markers used:
Dress                       Skin                                           
Bright Green           Satin                                      
Forest Green           Dusky Pink                                      
Holly                       Sunkissed Pink        
Mandarin                Soft Peach-cheeks     
A  mber
Hair                        Watermelon;
Caramel                  Carmine
Tan                          Ruby

A couple of Prima flowers with SU! Designer Neutrals buttons, a sentiment from Pursuit of Happiness stamp set and some cute hat pins that I coloured with my Pro Markers to match the card and the card is finished. I had so much fun making this card, I hope it is worthy of being in the Tiddly challenge! LOL
