Butterfly Smiles

Hi All!  Well, you know that saying 'Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug'?  Lets just say the past week or so I was not on the winning side of that equation :)  But things finally calmed down and I got to spend some quality time in my craft area which has definitely made things a lot better!  I was able to purchase some of the new stamps from Tickled Pink Stamps in digi form when their digi week started on the 15th and I couldn't wait to color up Lil Little Lilith- she is definitely a new favorite- with my Copics and then it was killing me that I hadn't put her on a card yet so I paired her with some butterflies that I cut out of some DCWV matstack papers from the Mariposa line so I can enter Tickled Pink's Challenge for 'Cute with Butterflies'.  As I started out I wasn't sure about how it was all looking but it actually came together pretty well by the time I sat back and looked at the final product- thanks in no small part to a cutie of an image :)
Copics:
Skin/Face- E000, E00, E11, E13, R32
Hair- E11, E15, E18, E19
Umbrella- BV23, BV25, BV29, BV31
Clothes- BG09, BG10, BG11, BG15, BG18, BV23, BV25, BV29, BV31
