Color Me creative: Brunette Challenge 20

Happy Friday Everyone:-)
I'm so excited to be bringing you my first DT card for Color Me Creative!! Challenge 20 which is to color an images's hair BRUNETTE, I Had to even try this out, since I don't normally do brunette hair color all the time on my images, so I went hunting for the best brunette color I could find to push myself out of my comfort zone! Hey what fun is it not to grow and get better at something you love:-) The challenge is open to anyone, you do not need to take a class to join in the fun and we run a new challenge every two weeks, this challenge will go till the 24th when the new challenge will be posted!

I used a Some Odd Girl digi image called "Kissy Mae" I fell in love with her and thought it would work well to practice on:-) I did get carried away and paper pieced her shoes and shirt(which I colored in copics again, and her sash in the red print from paper
I added an array of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers , which I added a hint of stickles to! The ribbon is a variety, I know the red and cream are Stampin Up and the black organza is just ribbon from my stash.
The design paper is from DCWV: The Mango Frost Pack. I used my Copic's to color in my image and will have the colors posted at the end of my post. If you have any questions please feel free to email me:-)
