Dream Team Blog Hop - Pink

This card was chosen as "Runner Up" @ Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog (Flower Challenge).

Hello friends!

Today a new blog hop at Mo Manning Dream Team  has set off, and the current month's theme has been  selected by Pops (as she's hosting the hop) & it's 'PINK'!

Make sure that you hopped in here from Vili's blog :)

I'm sure some of you may like the color and use it a lot on your cards, and some may on the contrary hate it. As far as I'm concerned, I proclaim my pink neutrality :)

For my hop card I chose to color a lovely digi from Mo's Digital Pencil shop called "Peaches". She looks so vintage, dreamy, lost in her thoughts.... Maybe thinking of somebody special, while tasting that peach?

The upper tag may be pulled out:

I tried my best to make the card look as 3d as possible:

For coloring sweet Peaches I used the following Copic colors:
Hair: E21, E25, E29.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, E02
Peach: R08, R05, R02, R00
Apron: R22, R21, R20, R00
Pants: R89, R85, R83, R81
Shoes: W5, W3, W1

Here are the details from the front of the card:

Inside the card there are several additional journaling tags, a cute envelope for a really secret message and another pulled-out tag:

The back:

That's my interpretation of 'PINK' :) Hope you like it.

Now please proceed to Anneke's blog, to find out what she has prepared for you :)

Just in case you get lost, here's the hopping order:
Pops, Jak, Gretha, Kerttu, Julie, Debby, Heidy, Alice, Vili, Alexandra, Anneke, Danielle, Kaly, Mina.
