You hold the key to my heart

Here is a cute card I made for a couple challenges. I chose to use my new paper pad from Graphic 45, Springtime. I just love the colors of this paper, so pretty and vintage. I used Tilda with Key image, which is so sweet. I chose to make an easel card. They are so easy, and make such a nice and different card for the recipient, I just LOVE them.
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and distressed all the edges of my paper with my distress tool. I LOVE that look and think it works so nicely with this image, as she looks a little vintage. I added a pink silk ribbon, as I LOVE ribbon. The corner pieces were part of a Pink Paislee Artisan Elements set that I have, and I added some Tutu Pink Glimmer Glam paint to them to give them some glitter and shine, as well as adding a touch of color.
I colored up this cutie with copics
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - Y11, Y23, E51, E53
Dress and socks- R0000, R000, R01, R02, Y20, Y23
Key - Y11, Y13, Y15
I added some roses from iamroses.com to the corner. The pink ones were painted with Vintage Pink Glimmer mist, the yellow were distressed with Vintage photo and Walnut Stain distress inks on the tips, and the white ones were sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist to add a bit of distress color.
I used my Lacey Circles Nestabilitie to cut the inside portion and left it pretty simple so that a nice message can be written. I added three small roses, glimmer misted in Gold Glimmer mist, as the base for the easel card to sit on.
