Pretty in Pink - A New CMC Challenge

Welcome and hello to all my crafty friends!     

It's my weekend and I am off from work!  Yeah!     I have some posts I need to do!    
I plan to leave for Sacramento this evening to spend some time with great friends.    I plan to take my computer and get caught up on some projects!   I just hate getting behind!     

Color Me Creative has a new challenge going.....   "PINK".   Now that is easy peasy!     
You can use Copics, ShinHan, Promarkers or colored pencils.    We just want to see your wondeful creations!   

I selected an image by Karen Middleton called Rosarna.  I used this same stamp recently for the publication...  Through The Craftroom Door.    I created it in sepia tone.   I decided to color this one up with a very different look     I used black hair and pink and grey.    It is amazing how the same stamp or image can look so different with just a color change.    Maybe I need to look at my closet and see if I can do the same thing for me!  LOL
