Thankful For You Crop Weekend @ Some Odd World

This is my second post for the day, so scroll down if this was not what you were looking for...

This card was inspired by the Friday Afternoon color challenge. I think I was subconsciously influenced by one of the digi images up for prize, because that is one of the ones I used. I only realized it when I went back to post =)  It is a great image and one that I would think of doing more in spring colors. Since I never really make "fall" cards, this was a great way to step outside of my box!
I used a daisy embossing folder, cut around the edges of some of the flowers to make a random edge, then ran a brown ink pad over the top for more definition. The digi image is raised with pop dots to make it stand out a little more. 
Copic marker colors for Rainbow Fairy: Y25, Y26, Y35, YR31.  r59, 546, R17, (E08 over all to make it more of a rusty-fall color).  E23, E21, E00, R02, W3.  E77, E74, E70, W5, W7.  G24, G99.  YG 91.  Thanks for checking it out!


Speech Bubbles!!
Rules this month are to just use a SOG image and add a speech bubble. The Challenge closes at the end of the month; so there area a few days left. I was inspired by their Thankful For You Community Crop weekend at Some Odd World.
Here's my speech bubble card:

I decided not to add any bling, and just keep it CAS, especially with the super-large digi image. It is Chill Kaylee and she can be purchased here. She is one of my new favs! Hope you like her too! I did not have the words I wanted to put in the bubble, and they did not show up too well with the BG93 Copic color, so I gave them a shadow with a darker green marker. I also added highlights to her eyes with a super-fine Sharpie White Paint Pen.
     Copic Marker colors used are: E23, E21, E00, R02, W3.  V09, V06, V05, V04, W7.  BG99, BG96, BG93, W7.  E55, E53, E51, W3.  E77, E74, E70, W7.
I am experimenting adding greys to deepen my shadows...Thanks for taking a look!
