Purple Butterfly Haze

Here is a card I have been working on, and I just love how it came out. I made this as my sample card for a class I am teaching. Hope the girls love it as much as I do. I have been working with some new coloring techniques, and really like how this one came out.
I used K&Company Jubilee papers for this card. I love the vibrant turquoise and purple, so pretty. I teamed these pretty papers up with Tilda with hawaiian Flower. Isn't she just a doll? I cut her out with layered nesties - Large Oval and Labels 10, which I added some brown pearls to.
I colored her with copics:
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30
Hair - E27, E23, E50
Dress, Shoes, and Flower - RV95, RV93, RV91, 0, W3, W5
Socks - C3, C1, C0
Butterflies - BG75, BG72, BG70, Y15, Y13, Y00

I used the Doohickey Tilda's lace die to add a border to the purple panel. I added Doohickey Heart Fence and Doily flowers to the card for added embellishment. I then added a white 25mm rose which I sprayed with Pashmina Glimmer Mist. The butterfly was punched using my Martha Stewart Monarch punch and some of the design paper.
I finished off the inside of the card with the same layout as the front. Simple with lots of room for a personal note!
