Besties "Sitting Pretty" Background Topper

Hello Everyone,
I hope that your all having a good weekend.
I have made a few darker cards lately, so I thought that I would make something colourful & girly  for a change. So I used sherri Baldys "Sitting Pretty Besite" which I think is really cute and you can find her here.

Don't forget that October is breast cancer awareness month, so here is my pink creation.

I have coloured her with promarkers for the skin and hair and added a hint of spectrum noire, to add a little auburn and golden accents. I have coloured the image with Prisma pencils, using the low odour solvent technique, which is my favourite!!! The papers are magnolia and colour core card, which I haven't sanded for a change hee hee!
I simply adore this crispy ribbon, I've got almost every colour!!!
The ribbon & doilie are from Live & Love Crafts and the pom poms are from the ribbon girl (links in my side bar to both on line stores.
 The Cherry blossoms in the top right hand corner are from the hobby house, which are quite unusual colours, for cherry blossoms.
All the rest of the embellies are from my stash of goodies!
Thank you for popping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Take Care
