Colour Create - Navy, Turquoise and Lime

Hey Everyone, its a sunny day here,got chilly toes though. My daughter had the raving hump this morning as she didnt want to take her coat with her to school, my gosh 8 years old you would have thought she was a teen! lol, so no doubt she will come home and still be holding a grudge with me! deffo my child that one :O)
I have made a card for the Colour Create Challenge This week the colours are gorgeous together and they are Navy, Turquoise and Lime and the optional use no design papers!!! WHAT EEEK! but I thought I would try, so my card is some what minimal lol

I coloured the image with a mix of promarkers,copic ciaos and twinks, and added those glass like pebbles to her hair. The greeting is Penny Black and I used the embossed tiny bubbles folder along the bottom, I sponged a little of this with a lighter turquoise. A bit of ribbon and some more glass like pebbles, very minimal for me lol but I think she works.

Thanks for stopping by and Looking.xxx
