PTI Princess Challenge no.3--coloring

Happy Sunday everyone! Back to the grindstone tomorrow. I hope you got a bit of "playtime" this weekend, and a chance to relax. We just got back from a shopping (ugh) expedition. Target, Wegman's, Petsmart, Preimer Wines, Ashley Furniture Homestore and lunch out! Whewww. I'm beat. I despise shopping...unless it's online for stamping supplies *grin*!
This card is for another challenge (I've posted 3 challenge cards recently!)
The Papertrey Princess challenge this round came from Michele! She issued a coloring challenge and I was excited to get crackin' because I love my Copics. But I honestly have no idea how to really use them... *pout* I can color well in any medium, but I am not a "realistic" colorer...I can't add shadows, depth, nor definition with my Copics very well. (So I guess I'm not actually a good colorer...am I?)
But I gave it my best shot, and actually had fun while doing it, so that's what really counts, right?

Thanks for stopping by this evening!

I think you did a great job with the coloring. I love my Copics, too, but I'm more of a collector than a user. Congrats to you for going for this challenge.

I think this has turned out great Dana! Your pink frosting has a nice amount of depth of colour to it, and I really like the colour match of the case and the ribbon/trim. And that Background Basics: Tin Types is the perfect, muted background! Love the punched edge too. Great card!!
