Lavender Blooms

I had lots of fun creating this card with this beautiful rubber stamp from Prima's Bloom Collection. The photo didn't come out great, but I've received several compliments on the IRL version:

I colored her with Copic markers, and paper-pieced her dress using a scrap of patterned paper. The background is actually one sheet of a Graphic 45 paper that I cut down to show both patterns. I back it with purple tulle and a shiny purple paper.

I fussy-cut the image, but I cut out her hair separately & used a ZIG glue pen to cover it with a thick layer of black flocking. I added some store-bought flowers and a leafy die-cut from SweetStamps. The silk butterfly on her shoulder was bought at Michael's... Mom & I can only seem to find these in the QuinceaƱera section, where the Special Occasion crafts are. Mom has to send them to me from Arizona, as Baltimore doesn't have that section in our Michaels yet! We do have a really nice Cheerleading section that I recommend for blingy ribbon!

I'm entering this card into the following fun Challenges:
