Crafty Friends DT Card - Colour Challenge

Evening all

I'm SO late posting this. Life is hectic and so not fun at the moment. Like...this year has just been pants so far! Every week there seems to be some new disaster and I am stressed beyond belief ha! I've seen the vet SO many times this year, and the Emergency Department at the hospital more times than I would ever want to. I really wanted to start afresh at the turn of the half-year, but it only took three days in for life to hurl the next box of lemons at me.  Guess I'll just have to start afresh next January ha. Or, college "new year" is September, so maybe September is a good place for a fresh start?! I just got my beautiful Scraps back from the vet, she had a graphic injury that I'm not going to describe and was hospitalised for four days, she's doing well now but I'm heartbroken for her! And really not looking forward to having to administer her medicines for the next week, she's a very highly strung nervous cat so it's really not going to go well :(

Anyway, back to crafts! The latest challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog is a colour challenge:

Pink, White and Green

I love this colour combo! It's definitely one of my favourites, for girly cards anyway. We have three fantastic sponsors for this challenge:
Sheep Ski Designs

For my card, I used this fantastic SheepSki Designs image called Humphrey (image no. 23).

And here's the full card I made using this adorable image! I made this as a Thank You card to give to our vet for taking such great care of our bunny Zorro :)
Nitwits papers
WOC flowers, Ruffle Trim and Pearl Trim from Live and Love Crafts 
Marianne Design Ivy Die
Cheery Lynn Flourish Die
White ribbon and Diamante Embellishment from Ribbon Girl
Coloured with Copics

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
As You Like It - Favourite Markers/inks/pencils
Copics are my favourite, because I colour best with them. I've tried Promarkers, Inktense pencils, I'm going to try Prisma pencils in the future, but for now Copics are my choice
