I Used Pink!!

Not the colour I reach for as a normal course of events, is it?
Colouring this image for a friends birthday card - Pink seemed to be the natural colour to choose for the sash. What image?.......this one........
This little beauty is Esmeralda. Just one of the beauties available at Rick St Dennis' Etsy store. See what I mean about the pink. Had you going maybe? Thinking I might go for something a little less bold?
She's coloured in using promarkers, a dab of gel pen for her jewels with just a dash of gold glamour dust on her shawl.
Then to give her a home for the card I needed to make for a friend, I used the sketch over at A Die For A Sketch. - Requirement that at least one die is used
 A slightly different angle - trying to reduce the glare
Ingredient were

labels 8 nestie
BP basic grey - love me tender range
gold miri, Red lace, hot pink and old gold ribbons. gold glamour dust and red pearls from stash
home made pins
Stamped sentiment, heat embossed in gold
The pins used beads from an old recycled bracelet

I am entering this into the challenge over at
