Digital Tuesday- Thankfulness

It's been a while since I posted for Digital Tuesday! My camera is playing up and I just haven't been able to get pics of my cards, but all is well now (well kind of lol), so I have a card to share for this weeks challenge which was chosen by the lovely Amy, and the challenge is "Thankfulness"- make a thank you card or a thanksgiving card.
So since we don't have Thanksgiving here, I went with a thank you card.
Our sponsor this week is CaroLines Creative Stamps who is giving away £10 to spend in her store.
Caroline gave the design team a few of her digi kits to use for the challenge, but unfortunately I couldn't use any of them as I didn't have coloured ink in my printer so couldn't print any of the papers etc, so instead I used a digi image that I already had printed out.

The image is by Sureya from Deviantart. I love her images, they are so much fun to colour :)
I colored her with a mix of Copics and Promarkers. Really need to get some new skin coloured markers as I don't have any ink in the colours that I normally use for skin, so had to go with a different combo (E02 copic and Almond Promarker) as it's all I had.
The papers are First Edition, sentiment was a digi freebie that I got sooo long ago that I can't remember where from. Flowers from my stash (2 middle sized roses are Wild Orchid Crafts and no idea about the others). I didn't have a purple flower in the size I wanted, so I just coloured a white one with a Promarker. They have all been glittered of course :)
I used some purple tulle and some organza ribbon from my stash, but you can't really see the tulle in this pic. To finish I added a little charm bit to the middle of the bow.

Don't look too close at the colouring! It's hard to stay in the lines when most of your fingers are numb! lol
I love she does the hair on her images. This one doesn't have as much hair as some of her other images, but it was still lots of fun to colour. I really must get new brown markers for hair as well! lol

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will have time to check out the challenge over at Digital Tuesday and see what the rest of my fabby team have made.

WOW Lora, she's beautiful and I didn't see any colours outside the line! Is the tag a die cut? If so, where is it from?
I was really hoping that you would be getting feeling back in your hands. Sending lots of positive thoughts, Brigitte
