Inky Impressions Challenges - Easel Cards

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday. I do hope your day is going well. It's a beautiful Spring(like) day here .. it *almost* makes me want to Spring clean.. I did say *almost*!! Can we officially say it's Spring yet?? Traditionally in Ireland it starts on the 1st of February but meteorologists say it starts on the 21st of March, at the Spring Equinox.. so I'm thinking 1st of March would be a good middle ground, ha!!

Ok, enough babbling from me. The challenge for the next fortnight over on Inky Impressions is to make an easel card. I decided on "All Bundled up Lili" for this one, and I coloured her up in warm colours using copic sketch markers.

My papers are Basic Grey 'Nook & Pantry' matted with chocolate brown card. All have been machine stitched. I kept the embellishments pretty simple as the colour of the papers would just drown them out. Just a few flowers, pearls and a little ribbon was all it needed. 

Copics used:
Skin - E00, 21, 51
Pants - B91, 93, 95
Top/Socks - Y15, 17, 18
Scarf/Gloves/Hairband - R32, 35, 37
Shoes/Hair - E44, 43, 42
Eyes - BG05, 07
