Make It Crafty - Sealed with a Kiss

Howdy Y'all!
I hope you are having a great summer (or winter depending on where you live)!!!  We are having a nice, warm summer so far.

For my card today, I am featuring a beautiful new stamp from Make It Crafty called "Sealed with a Kiss."  

I wanted to carry the fancy dress onto the card, so I added some of this gorgeous lace. I also added a chippie from the Butterfly Swirls collection I colored the chippie with purple paint and added some Perfect Pearls for some shimmer.

She is crazy fun to color. I used several shades of Copics to add the shadows, leaving some areas white for the highlights. 

Of course I had to add flowers to this beauty's card. I loved the leaves because they are the same tone as the paper with purple tips.
I used the following items on my card. 

Paper: Once Upon a Time (DCWV)
Ink: Copics, Dye Ink
Accessories: Lace, Liquid Pearls, Flowers, Leaves, paint, Perfect Pearls

I am entering my card in the Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge using this sketch...

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
