Color Me Copic Challenge

Hello! Color Me Copic has a tutorial today on coloring the folds on clothes using Copics (by Elaine) and will be having a challenge to go along with it! It is being sponsored by Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and she sent along this lovely stamp for us to color.

I colored in the image at the beginning of the week (she was a dream to color!) but she is so far from my usual style that I really struggled with putting a card together around her (not her fault - she is absolutely darling!) I felt the need to be very girly with her, which I am not usually....I made the flowers using white printer paper and a Martha Stewart punch (I tried to use tissue wrapping paper at first because I really wanted them to be soft and delicate, but I couldn't get my punch to work right with it. Is it even possible? Does anyone know the secret to making that work?) I curled the edges of the flowers using the straight part of a straight pin then added pearls in the centers. A little bit of ink distressing and some ribbon, and Voila!

The Details:
