Sweet Stampin - Girly but no pink

Am really not getting on with this new blogger layout for creating posts, can't find anything and it had re-set word verification which I didn't realise!!

Anyway thought I would have a go at the Sweet Stampin Challenge, they want girly cards but no pink.  Well when you have 3 boys and get the chance to do anything girly I always go pink, it just has to be done but when I did this card I used a technique for sepia tones that Nikky Hall demonstrated in a magazine and kept the whole card in the same tones but still went for girly.
This image is my first Saturated Canary called Good Morning and I just love her, have already made 3 cards using her, so lovely to colour in.  Think I can see a few more finding there way into my collection they are just so beautiful.  She is coloured with promarkers with some diamond stickles added to make her sparkle.  Papers are from g.c.d Paris Nights.  Used Cheery Lynn dies and flowers from my stash with more diamond stickles added.

Even made a box for this card as there was no way it was going in an envelope with those flowers :)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and thank you for stopping by :)

You really made the sepia wonderfully! The image and the papers are just perfect. And it's really clever to make a box for the card!
