Dandelion Clock in pink

After a very busy but exciting weekend, I'm starting to get back into the groove and getting caught up!  Phew!  My son had a big sports event on the weekend, and he did so well.  It's always heartwarming to see your child work so hard for something, and then pull it all together!

I fell in love with the last Lili of the Valley release, and just couldn't resist this little girl called Dandelion Clock.  I've paired her up with the Fine & Dandy line from My Mind's Eye.

Her wings are dusted with Dazzling Diamonds and I've attached a butterfly charm from my stash just to follow along with the spring tone of the card.  I really wish spring would arrive!  I can't take much more snow and -20's temperatures!

Copic colours:
Skin - E000, 00, 02, blush for cheeks
Hair, shoes - E30, 31, 33, 35
Skirt, wings, socks, flowers - R000, 01, 02
Shirt - BG0000, 10, 11
Greenery and flowers:  YR31, YG 01, 13
