Challenge card

I had some unexpected spare time today, so I put it to good use (no didnt do house work)I finished a card that I started yesterday, to enter into this weeks
Welcome to Colour Create challenge.. For this challenge the colours are Mint, Chocolate & Cream. Chocolate wasn't a problem for me but the mint was a huge challenge as this is not a colour I would buy or use very often & I didn't think about this yesterday when I started colouring my image from the Greeting Farm TT-Izzy.
I still cant seem to get my skin right, one day I will get it. I do tend to learn by repetition:)
The stiching is all done by hand with cotton thread, I love sewing on my scrapbook pages so why not bring that to cards.
Thank you for stopping by...

Used: Paper Webster's pages Lullaby Lane..
SU! Chocolate Chip Sage Shadow ( which is the closest I could get to mint). Button.
Colouring Copic's
Other are all random's from my 6yr stash..
