Bloggers Challenge-Color Challenge

 I am a few hours late today....... For the bloggers challenge today (Friday), Challenge Mom Lisa Somerville gave us a color challenge- Pink, Brown and White.  As usual, I am making a card at the last minute.....I have a really good excuse this week though....I have had a killer headache, and had to get a shot in my neck yesterday- and am still on some muscle relaxants......and believe me- coloring while having taken them is quite the challenge.  (And I hope I do not look at these cards later and think AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!)
  OK- In order to see the Shimmerz on the heart, I took 2 pictures of each card.  I LOVE Pink and Brown- and have some Basic Grey DP that I have been Coveting......what a perfect use.......
We have a new Digi designer at Firecracker Designs by Pamela, and I just fell in love with this image immediately. I used the image from Cherish You and the Sentiment from Warm my Heart-both just released today.  I am getting together with my 'Sewing friends' next weekend, and have 6 cards to make- well here are two I will not be doing at the last minute!
  So, the image was printed from the computer, colored with Copic Markers -for the lighter card RV32 and RV34, and for the darker card, R46, R83 and R85.
  I painted Shimmerz on last-after coloring with the Copic markers- and for future reference- you cannot color with Copics on an image once it is painted with Shimmerz........so make sure you do all of your touch-ups first.
  I added some lace to the side panel and zig-zagged around all of the layers.
 I used the Sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge to get my MoJo started- it is wonderful! 
Challenges for this card:
