Bellarific Friday: Here Comes Summer!

Hi all,
IT'S FRIDAY! Happy "start to the weekend"!
Tomorrow is the start of the Farmer's Market here, and I love going there on Saturdays! I know summer has officially arrived :-)

So, we have some amazing things to show over on the Bloggabella!  This week's Bellarific Friday challenge is based on the theme "here comes summer"!  Perfect timing, and this is gonna inspire everyone to welcome summer in!

Here's mine:

My card base is Rose Red CS, and the pretty flowered paper is from SU's retired Cutie Pie pack matted with black.  Next, is a square of Kraft CS, along with some Martha Stewart pearls on the 4 corners.  I added a strip of So Saffron grosgrain ribbon around that whole base too. 

I stamped the completely adorable Patsy Pixie onto Bella's Bestest Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured her with Copics, and added some shading with Prismas.  I think it's safe to say that Patsy is my favourite of the pixies.  I cut her out with Square Nesties, and added some sponging with Wheat Versamagic ink.
My pixie's hair was done with a bunch of dots, like Lindabella taught us at our colouring class :-)

Copics used:
*Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
*Hair: E31, E35, E37, E29
*Leaves and stems: YG11, YG13, YG17
*Dress and yellow flowers: Y32, Y35, Y38
*Blue flowers: B32, B34
*Pink flowers: RV32, R43, R46 R29
*Orange flowers: YR61, YR64, YR68
