Another card and a second take on a Mo Manning image

I apologize for not getting this posted yesterday as promised. I got a little busy and didn't get back to it until just now. I featured a card with this image a while back but I have changed the colors and used a new Nestie die that I won in a giveaway (I am totally enamored with Nesties now!).  This image is called Penelope's Party Wagon, in cased you missed it the first time I posted it.  I adore Penelope's hair!!! This time I have dressed her all in pink and yellow.  This little girl is just too cute in my opinion. I made this another easel card, which I enjoy making more than any other style except perhaps tri-fold shutter cards (not that I have made every type there is by any means).

Base card and mats are Recollections cardstock; dp is from Basic Grey's Lemonade collection. The image was colored with Copics, of course. I colored this one some time ago so I don't have a list of the colors I used. Ribbon, heart sticker and flower are from my stash. The ecru cotton lace is from Jo-Ann Crafts. The little sentiment square that says "Just For You" is actually a 1" embroidered patch that my friend, Kay sent me.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

One Crazy Stamper's June Colors of the Rainbow Challenge - bright, colorful
Mo Manning's DP2 Challenge #88 - Flowers, Flutter, Fancy or Fancy Fold  (I made an easel card)
