Lexi's Creations Challenge #12: Recipe 3,2,1

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
It's challenge day at Lexi's Creations and today Lexi has a great recipe for you:
3 papers, 2 embellishments, and 1 image.

The sponsor for this challenge is the Stamping Boutique and the winner gets to chose 5 free images...how great is that! The Stamping Boutique has a great variety of images so be sure to stop by there and see what you could win.



I made my easel card with the adorable image 'Lillie With Tulips' ...Isn't she just the cutest! You can find Lillie and much more at Lexi's shop, Lexi's Doodles.
Here are some more shots of my card:





For my card I used patterened papers from Sandylion "Lollia" collection that I've had for ages...It doesn't show that well in the pic, but the colors are actually very bright lime green and teal...The blue cardstock is from Canson...also had that for a while...so, that's 3 papers.
My two embellishments are my bright yellow gingham ribbon, that I got from Hobby Lobby, and my pearls, also cheapies from Hobby Lobby, that I colored with my copics to match...I so love this technique! Then, of course, my adorable image 'Lillie With Tulips' by the uber talented Lexi.
The punch I used is MS and sentiment cut-out was done on my cricut with the Mother's Day cartridge. The sentiment is from the TGF buddies stamp set.
I was thinking I didn't use THAT many copics so I didn't take a pic...turns out it's more than I thought so now I gotta list them all out for you, sorry this makes it a little bit longer.
Copics:
Y:000, 02, 11, 35, 38
YR: 04, 68
YG:03, 06, 09
RV:00, 02, 04
The yellow 35 & 38 are on the orangier side and were used with the oranges for the bill and feet.
Well, I think that's about it remember Lexi's challengs are bi-weekly and start on Monday's.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed my card and enter the contest.
Feel free to leave me any questions or comments, your feedback is always appreciated!

Have a great day!
Autumn
