The ABC Challenge: P is for...

Hello friends,
Welcome to a new challenge this week at The ABC Challenge. This week, the challenge is P is for Pearls- one of my absolute faaav embellies! (Probably because I'm a June baby & pearls are my birthstone :)
Here's my card:
 This is a Sarah Kay stamp called Spring is Back. This is a very detailed image so it is a colorista's delight!
Here's a closer peek:
 There is a pearl swirl along the edge, on the middles of the punched pansy border, & larger ones on the edge of the panel. I added Stickles to her bell bottom ruffled hems & to the middles of each flower.
Copics used: skin E000, E00, E11, R20  hair Y23, YR23, E35  pants BG11, BG13, BG18  top R30, R32, R35 Hat E31, E41 flowers R20, R22, R24, R29, R59, Y11, Y13, Y18, YG13, Pebbles T1 and the entire image is highlighted with BG10

Here's a peek of the innies:
 Kept it simple & I even added pearls on the middles of the punched pansy border with my Viva Decor pearl pen.

The letter P is brought to you by
