Black Haired Lady by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hello there!  I hope everyone is staying healthy and sane with all this craziness going around in the world.  Today, I am sharing my DT inspirational card for Ching-Chou's Facebook challenge using the stunning "Black Haired Lady" image, found here:
Ching-Chou also has a blog challenge that you can enter.  If you enter one, or both, you may win some beautiful images.
The theme is "Easter" or "Floral" but the DT members' theme for this week is "Lots of Layers".  But, I did manage to use both themes.  

I used my usual mediums to colour her (Copics and Polychromos).  The flowers are all handmade.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a lovely week.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Foliage:   Marianne Creatables "Forest Branch" die LR 0150
Flowers:  SVG file (large flower)
                EK Success "Gardenia" punch
                EK Success - name unknown (tiny flowers)

Swarovski crystals (magenta), gems and ribbon are from my stash.
