a little bit of Saturated Canary, Pastel style!

Hi there lovely peeps!
Well may I start with an apology! 
Can you believe it after after saying the spr#ng  word yesterday, ... yes it has happened ... it is snowing this morning!!!!!!!!! So My heartfelt apologies to anyone who has snow this morning! and a super apololgy to No. 1. son, Logan who left for a weeks camp with cadets this morning!!  Ooops!
Well my craft room is, I would say 90% finished now, got frustrated at myself yesterday and had a bit of a burst of tidying!! :) Hopefully I will post some pics when totally finished!! But I do think that the nicer environment is starting to wake the old mojo!! (fingers crossed!)
So this is a just for fun card I made this week;
I have used the beautiful Easter Dress that can be found here I photo shopped out the cute bunny, but again it shows just how versatile these beautiful digi stamps are!!!
I have coloured the image with my Copics: Skin E000,00,11 and R11 and 20. Dress and boots,  RV91,93 and flex marker pale blossom, with a hint of RV10 to "pink it up a little"!!, BG70, 71 (my own blend) and 72 and T0, 1 and 3. The flowers are a mix of Kort & godt, WOC and live and love crafts, I have used beautiful maja papers which along with the gorgeous lace is also from LLC, I gave the butterfly a bit of the Frantage treatment, a bit of shabby pink, and blue and pink fragments! It's amazing how it turned an ordinary die cut into a beautiful embellishment!
