My Besties/ Making Faces going bold and beautiful!

I think this is a first for me..i wanted to make a pretty brown tone image for a long time, but wasn't sure i could give the color justice..i think i have this time?   I did a lot of research trying to find some Copic color combinations and alas...i didn't have one..i was missing the E13.  Wait until you see my combination below.  :)

I decided i also wanted to go bold with my card colors..and for me this is bold. 

Here is my card and using a new Sherri Baldy Making Faces image:
So i am also using a brand new die..the blue flowers are a border die from PoppyStamps called Mod Flower isn't it?  Other dies are, my go to fern leaf from Joy Crafts, my leaf punch from Martha Stewart (I was too lazy to die cut more fern leaves) and then the frame is two dies put together from Lifestyle crafts..a square and the wavy type die.

Copics used:
skin-YR23, E19, 15, R22
hair- C5, 7, 100
bow- YG00, 01, 03
circles- colored w/glaze and Gelly roll pens topped with Stickles/diamond.
