Dew Drops

Hi!  I am back with a new creation for a friends birthday that is coming up.  I have used a Paper Shelter digital image and as my title says, the image is called "Dew Drops".  It has been a very long and very cold winter and this just made me wish for some springtime.  My friends birthday is April 30, so hopefully it will be feeling like spring by then. 

Here's a closeup of the coloring.

I have Copics in the following colors:
Skin - E 11, 21, 00, 000
Hair - E 35: Y 23; YR 23
Leaves - YG 45, 17, 13, 11
Top and sock stripes - RV 21, 23, 25
Skirt and sock stripes were BV but I didn't write them down!!  OOPS!
The dew drops and wings - BG 11, 70 - they look almost white in the photos but they actually have green in them in real life
Background - BG 0000; B 0000, B 00
I also painted the wings with Smooch Glitz

The papers are Basic Grey, Bazzill and Tim Holtz; flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace was from stash; die cuts are Spellbinders and Marianne Designs; the interior phrases are from Stampin Up and they were heat embossed.

A couple of the inside for you.

I am entering this one into a couple of challenges.
Inky Chicks - Happy Birthday Girl
2 Sisters - Blue and/or Green
Paper Shelter - Make It Bloom
