Paper Sundaes Challenge #23 - Pretty as a Princess

Happy Sundae!  I had sooooo much fun with this week's Paper Sundaes Challenge of which the theme is "Pretty as a Princess".  At first I thought I had to use a princess image for this card but quickly learned that it basically means show us your "girliest girl card".  Being as I have one son I don't have a lot of reason to make girly cards all the time.  I do however have the most adorable niece Katelyn who is super cute & I chose this image by Magnolia called "Sweet Tilda" because it totally reminds me of her!  You can pick up this image at Simon Says Stamp our monthly sponsor who carries not only tons of Magnolia stamps but many other lines like Penny Black, Greeting Farm, Whiff of Joy, MFT and so many more!  Here is my card:
All paper I used was from My Mind's Eye Totally Girl Collection & the cardstock is Bazill.  I used copics to colour the main image (RV0000, E00, E02, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E40, E41, R02, RV32, RV34, W2 & YG03) and used my white Inkssentials pen to add a highlight to her cheeks.  The larger flowers I used are from Wild Orchids Crafts however they were originally white but I airbrushed them in copic RV34 and then sprayed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  I sprayed the smaller flowers & the pine leaf punches with the Glimmer Mist as well.  The butterflies were punched using a Martha Stewart punch and I added the Queen & Co Orchid pearls to accent them.  The rhinestone swirl is from Recollections.  Isn't she just so adorable?  And here's my niece Katelyn who's even cuter :)
I will be entering this into the following challenges:
