Tilda Valentine for January sketch

Well, it's almost the end of our Christmas break so what was I to do today? Create something, of course!
I made this card to go with the Magnolia-licious January sketch (see one post down for ALL the details!
I've been very stuck on brown lately, this time I paired it with coral colors. It also includes many of My Favorite Things so I think it qualifies for today's Limited Supply challenge on SCS.
I use a Martha Stewart flower, Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket papers, my cuttlebug with embossing and Nestabilities and Magnolia stamps!
Here are the copic colors I used: Face, hands and legs E00, E02 and R20 for cheeks. Hair E31, E35, E37 and a touch of E51. Yellows Y17 and Y38. The pinks, reds, and corals are listed from light to dark. They are R11, R20, RV42, R22 R32, R35, R29, R59.
(Thanks to those who comment that they like when I list my colors!)
oh, yes, the Tilda is from the Pink collection and I was inspired by Claudia to use the bench on my card! Thanks, Claudia!
Guess that's it for this post! Have a creative weekend!
