Monica - Hannah Lynn - Crafts and Me

Good evening everyone from the really bad blogger.  I have a peace offering for you so check back later.
I am starting to get used to the new glasses, I think??. Can still only spend a while on the pc without getting a headache, but hopefully that will improve this week.
I bought this Hannah Lynn image 'Monica' ages ago and finally got her inked up.

I think she is gorgeous. Wow now how many things did I use on this card that have never seen the light of day before?  Memory box dies Fabulous Phlox, Chloe stem, Dancing Poppies. Cheery Lynn  Spring Flower Burst Doily, and Tim Holz on the edge butterflies.
She is straight cut with the corners rounded and mounted on a SB labels 23. 

 I also went embossing mad and added black sparkle embossing powder to the mount and outer edge mat, and Frantage to the butterflies.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers. Pearls and charm are from my stash. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to her eyes, lips and to the butterfly in her hair.

The inside does match the front.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Thanks for taking the time to look
