LaLa Land Challenge - Center Step card

This week at LaLa Land Crafts, we were challenged to create a center step card. This is the first one I have made, and it was actually pretty simple to create, and makes such an amazing and interesting card! I love it.
I was thrilled to work with one of the new images just released at CHA, Princess Marci. I just LOVE her, isnt she amazing???!!!
I used Kraft as my base for the card and added some Pink Paislee paper to the center panel of the card, however only a small part of it shows behind the image, but still gives a finished look to the center panel.
I colored Marci with copics.
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R21, R30, R02
Hair - E27, E23, E53, E51
Top of dress - C1, C00, R02, R0000, Y15
Skirt - R02, R01, R00, R0000
I added pink silk ribbons and bows to the side panels, and think this adds such a feminine and pretty touch to the card. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts pink 25mm rose and chocolate brown 15mm roses. I also tucked a Prima Leaf sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist behind the arrangement. The sentiment, Princess, was printed out on my computer and mounted on Chocolate cardstock.
I hope you will go over to LaLa Crafts Blog and see the other Center Step card my temaies have made for you, they are all pretty amazing!
