DP2 Challenge #130 - Seeing Spots

Howdy y'all!
There's a new challenge up at DP2 and we're seeing spots before our eyes!
That's right! We're a little spotty over at DP2 and we'd love for you to come and join us. If you haven't figured it out, our challenge is SPOTS. Just a few or spots everywhere!
Emboss 'em, color 'em, use spots on your dp or ribbon, just get some spots on your project and OF COURSE use one of Mo's fabulous images on your project!

Here is what I came up with. It seems that my last few cards have been using green,
but I found this wonderful paper from Magnolia in my stash and paired it with some pretty orange (which had no name on it). I had to cut the brightness of the green somehow.

Here is my card you can see I used LOTS and LOTS of SPOTS!

I used Mo's sweet image named Adele. You can find her and hundreds of equally fantastic images here.

Here is a closer look of how I colored her using Copic markers and just a touch of pencils.

Here's the inside of my card. The salutation panel is pretty plain in comparison to the sentiment panel as I didn't feel that it needed much more.

Here is the top sentiment panel...

Here's my artsy side view of the card...

Here's my card recipe:

DP - Magnolia and unknown

Copic Markers - sorry I forgot to write them down
SB Labels 18, Long Rectangles Small and Scalloped
