Saturated Canary - Thinking of You

Hi guys! We're rushing towards my surgery date of April 8, really quickly....
It's a little bit scary, but mostly, it's hugely exciting! Bring on my whole new life!!!
I have a card to share today...
.
This forlorn looking little girl is from Saturated Canary, I've stamped her on some Blender card, and coloured her up with my Spectrum Noir Markers, using a much lighter colour palette to what I'm used to! I then die cut a circle around her, and gave her a border, and shading, to suggest that she's outside... I used the "dot technique" to fill the space, without laying down lots of colour. I then proceeded to created my card, the background paper is one that has been in my stash for ages, I think it is Kaisercraft, but I can't be certain. I then stitched around the edges and attached some washi tape, and another piece of patterned paper (My Minds Eye). I popped the main image panel using foam adhesive, and attached some flowers next to the sentiment. Here is the close up -  
I am entering this into two challenges... the first is the pastels challenge from Saturated Canary Challenge, and I used the sketch challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches (gosh I love their sketches!)
Thanks for popping by! Don't forget, if there is anything you want/need from my store, get in before the end of the week, as I will be popping it on "vacation mode" while I'm away!
