What a difference a day makes...

Good evening, lovely Bloggers!  The fickle British weather never ceases to amaze me...from sunshine and freezing temperatures, to torrential rain and now, this was the view from our window this evening...
...snow...aaaghhhh!!!  I thought Spring was on it's way!  I left Mum's house after our workshop this afternoon and it was grey, but dry...about 7 miles down the road, it was raining quite heavily, then a further 2 miles along, there was thick snow and snowing heavens hard.  By the time I got home, the snowflakes were the size of doilies and everywhere now has a blanket of white - very pretty but a right pain in the rear!!
Anyway, enough of my weather forecast, or should that be pastcast?!  I have another Saturated Canary card to share today, this one is Rose Red...
...I made the card using the fab sketch at Simon Says Stamp Challenge (how did I ever do without sketches?!)  The background is embossed with Embossalicious folder Floral Frenzy, my favourite folder of the moment, and the papers are First Edition (I think, Summer Breeze)...
...I coloured Rose with my Promarkers and paper pieced her dress with a paper from First Edition Boho Chic.  I have been trying different skin tones and used the same combo as for the Larakins, giving her a bit more colour!  Here's the colours for all you Pro-markers...
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink
Hair - (new brown combo for a change) Tan, Shale, Umber, Black FM (I find the black Flexmarker ismuch easier to use and blend)
Dress - Pale Pink, Cocktail Pink, Antique Pink, Amaranth Red FM
Tree - Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa
Bird - Buttercup, Tulip, Sunflower FM 
Eggs - Aquamarine FM, Surf Blue FM
...Once again, I decorated the inside to match and added a red satin ribbon and bow.  Hope you like my card and thanks again for dropping by, it's much appreciated!  Hugs, Lisa x

Rose is beautiful Lisa and that hair colour is really fab. I do like the way you decorate the insides of your cards too. More snow for you...keep warm we have another icy blast on it's way again. I so agree I just wish the spring weather would reappear xx

Hi Lisa. Your card is beautiful! I love it! You are a master at coloring and blending your characters. She's gorgeous! I love your design for the card as well. Oh my gosh...your weather looks terrible! We had 81 degrees Fahrenheit here yesterday...unseasonably high for us but what a treat! Today was more into reality with highs only in the low to mid 50s. I wanted to thank you so much for stopping by my blog again and leaving such a sweet comment. You always make me smile and make me feel so good!!! <3 Candy
