Raise the Bar features Saturated Canary

Good Friday everybody! Raise the Bar's challenge is being sponsored by Saturated Canary this week and this is my first time using one of Krista Smith's digi images...and it won't be the last!  I love her trademark eyes and adorable characters!  You'll want to check out all of her images HERE and try one for yourself!  Along with using a SC image, the challenge theme is birthdays.

This digi is called "Thank You" and  after a lot of deliberation, I finally chose this one for its versatility.  I'm still learning with Copic coloring and have found the new Annie's Attic "Copic Coloring Guide"- Level 3: People to be very helpful with color selection.  I was also inspired by the colors in the Tuesday Trigger photo this week...a gorgeous fall wreath!  I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge that I'll be using again and again!
Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Tiny Tags (PTI), Thank You digi image by Saturated Canary.
PAPER: Julianne DP by K&Co, White (PTI)
ACCESSORIES: Leafy Flourish die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Tiny tags die by PTI, Oval Nesties, Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT, Flower Die-Namics by MFT.
COPICS: Hair-E23, E25, E29, E79
                Eyes-YG25, YG67, N2
                Skin-E50, E51, E04, E93 (cheeks)
                Shoes-E43, E44, E47
                Clothing-R56, R59, YG93, YG95Y13, Y15, Y17.
