Saturday playing and an Odd Girl Challenge

I rarely enter the same challenge more than once, but the challenge over at Some Odd Girl just calls out to me to play more than once.  If I get some time I will be back to play again.  The challenge is to lift one of the Odd Girls.  *snicker, snicker* just love that title!  I have been browsing the DT's blogs and I have come across one by Asa that I wanted to lift.  You can find Asa's card here.  It was one that had you using kraft or white and 2 pops of color.  For my lift I used orange and green.
These papers are from the Stella and Rose collection from My Mind's Eye.  Have you been checking out the yummy papers coming out at CHA?  Definitely wish I lived close to that!!   
I know I have seen a lot of people use their copic inks to color ribbon and lace, today I used my YR-68 to color a white button.  I had some orange buttons but none of them were big enough to give me the pop I wanted so I colored a white one I had.  The lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I am almost out! Might have to place another order soon.
There are 3 more days to play along in this challenge.  I wonder if I will get to visit some more blogs and lift a few more DT members?  
And here are the copics I used.  This is the first time I used these colors for hair.  E-99, 97, 95, and E-19.  What do you think?  
Now let's add this to some other challenges.
Allsorts challenge is Free and Easy.
Make it Colourful has color your embellishment. I colored my button.
Crafty Catz challenge has no pink or blue.
Art Impressions has stitching.
iCopic has color with pastels as it's challenge this week.

Hi, Bren! I love, love, love this card! These quirky little characters are pretty cute, aren't they? I don't have any of them but I see them all over Blogland. My ankles look just like hers tonight! I'm up very late, finishing a multi-day blog hop and thought I'd repay your visit to my blog from earlier today before I lay my head down for the night. Thanks so much for your sweet comments.

Hugs,
Anne B.
