MIC challenge

I just realised in my haste to get ahead with some of my dt assignments i made this card for a challenge in May, DUH!!! by then easter will be long gone!!Ok so now that i have had some enlightenment i had to go and delete it from the dt blog and not being one to miss an opportunity, they are wanting us to color black hair on the challenge for Make it colourful.
My image was matted onto a NS die which i threaded ribbon through and then added lots of pearls.  I stitched around the edges of my dp, distressed the edges of my matting.  I have layered my flowers with punched out fern branches, roses and buds.
The lace of my little Tilda image, which is Tilda holding egg basket item #369 available from Magnolia-licious store where Diana will give you exceptional service was also given a lavish going over of stickles star dust, not sure you can even see them here.
Copcis used for the purple and black:  V09, V05, V01, V000     C7, C5, C3, C1
Happy easter all
