Mo's Digital Pencil Colour Challenge #283

Hey there Mo Manning fans.  This month we have a colour theme at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge for aqua and teal and lavender tones.
I used one of Mo's older images called Poodle and decided on a whim to use my Faber-Castell Polychromos which The Hubster bought for me at Christmas and which I had not yet used. They look so pretty in their tin like a Tom Hanks' "bouquet of sharpened pencils" from the movie You've Got Mail
In fact, whereas I have added a bit of pencil to my Copic colouring occasionally, I don't think I have ever coloured an entire image in pencils before AND I decided to opt for no black lines and to colour on kraft card for extra difficulty so this was REALLY pushing the boundaries for me.  I have to say (even though I probably shouldn't) that I'm really pleased with the result.  The back ground lettered stamp is Stampendous Dream Text.  My sentiment is by Heidi Swapp inked in Oxide inks, the little paw print die is by Whimsy and the puppy dies are by Robert Addams. The stitched frames are Simon Says Stamp.  I added some flowers from my stash to really pile on the embellishments.  Here is the colour swatch for inspiration.
We would love it if you would come and play along using one of Mo's digital images or one of her bona fide rubber stamps from her chosen partner companies.
I am entering my card into the following challenges...
Colour Throwdown #561 which has a very similar set of colours to Mo's challenge this week;
Cute Card Thursday #600 want to see dies and punches; and
Aud Sentiments #236 has an Anything Goes with a sentiment challenge.
