For my card I have used Lil' Spanish Lolita Willow. I absolutely love her to bits. I decided to paper piece her gorgeous dress. You might think it is too difficult to paper piece a digi image but it is actually quite easy to do. I just printed out a copy of Willow on regular copy paper after I printed her on the my Copic paper. I adhered the patterned paper from the My Minds Eye On the Bright Side 6x6 paper pad over the image on the copy paper with re-positional adhesive and then ran it through the printer again. Now that then image is printed on the patterned paper, I cut out the dress, inked the edges with chalk ink, added some shading with my Copic T1 marker, then I adhered it with 2 way liquid glue. I also coloured a second pair of Willow's hands and cut them out and adhered them over the patterned paper dress.  I love adding some sparkle to my images with my Sakura Stardust pen and I just spread it around with my finger to soften the sparkle.  I cut the MFT Jumbo Monarch Border Die-namics die from Kraft cardstock but I used the negative portion of the die this time as it is as pretty as the positive. To embellish I added some cotton lace trim, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some twine and a smattering of half pearls, here and there.

Here is the inside....I re-sized Willow and printed her on the white cardstock. I used another sentiment from the MFT Finishing Flourishes set and used the Layered Labels Die-namics and the Clearly Sentimental label Die-namics.

Well, thanks SO much for hopping by to see my card with Lil' Lolita Spanish Willow. Please hop on over to Yani's blog and see what wonderful inspiration she has in store for you! Then be sure to pop by the Tickled Pink Stamps shop where all the March Lil' Lolitas are now available!

Hope you have a crafty day!!!
Hugs,
