Vintage Violet, new challenge at ABC Challenges

Hi folks a very happy Saturday to you all.  I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge over at The ABC Challenges and today we are on P for Pretty in Pink and we are sponsored this time by the fab My Favourite Things.
So here's what I made for the theme.  I've used the utterly divine 'Vintage Violet' by Saturated Canary and she's been coloured up with copics.
Image:  Saturated Canary 'Vintage Violet'
Papers:  My Minds Eye 'Quite Contrary' - freebie from a magazine
Medium:  Copics
Dies:  MFT 'crochet border', MFT 'royal leaves', Magnolia swirl and doily flowers
all matted onto cardstock from Papermill Direct
everything else from stash
A quick side view and you can see the MFT royal leaves die and a better view of the Magnolia doily flower.  I used the pink cardstock and cut out 5 of the doily flowers, inked them all up with Tim Holtz distress ink and then blitzed them with a good dose of Glimmer Mist, let them dry and put them together with a pearl brad from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
Lastly the close up of the adorable image.  She's been on my 'must have list' for a while and I caved the other day when Krista had an offer on, don't you just love her!

Copics used
Face:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Dress:  R81, R83, R85/ YG11, YG13, YG67/ BG07, BG09, Flexmarker soft aqua
Hair/shoes/bag:  E31, E35, E37, E29
Okay folks time to dash its now the early hours of the morning and I'm not sure what I'm typing here things are looking a little blurry!!
