Be a Macaron...

Hello All, I made this card for a friends birthday - its perfect for her as she is a bit crazy! The image and statement are stamps from Stamping Bella called Uptown Girl Monique loves Macarons. (Sorry the pic isn't the best.)

I made this card using the colour scheme for the Stamping Bella Friday challenge but I got kept on late at work yesterday (I love a 17hr shift!) so I didn't get chance to post it on time.
The papers I've used are from My Favourite Things - Smitten collection and I simply mounted them onto red bazzill. I also added a few red gems in the corner and used Star Dust stickles on the Macarons. I die cut the image used some new dies I treated myself to from Die-namics called Wonky Stitched Rectangles... names says exactly what it is!

I used these promarkers & flexmarkers to colour Monique -
Skin - Coral, Soft Peach, Blush & Antique White.
Hair - Buttercup, Raw Sienna, Sleigh Bells & Pineapple Crush.
Macarons - Pastel Green, Oasis & Turquoise.
                   Red, Poppy, Ruby & Burgandy.
                   Baby pink, Cocktail pink & Salmon Pink.
                   Vanilla, Buttercup, Pineapple Crush & Sleigh Bells.
Filling - Cinnanom, Cocoa & Chestnut.
Dress - Warm Greys
Trousers - Oasis
Pumps - Poppy.

I really like the combo of Turquoise and red together - So much so that my craft room is done out in these colours.
