Lovely lavender

This sweet little butterfly girl comes from All Dressed Up and as you can see, I decided to go lavender.   I've used my usual favorite coloring medium of prisma pencils and gamsol, as I love how you can create shades using just one pencil, instead of juggling more, as you would with most markers.   I've tucked a couple doilies behind and allowed just enough to peek out to give it a lacy, feminine touch.   The two circles at the upper right are candi-dots, and then I've added a bow and a butterfly.   Thanks so much for coming in to view my card creation.
I would like to try my hand at the following challenges:

All Dressed Up - AG
Allsorts - gingham
As You Like It - favorite markers, ink, pencils and why
CCC Digi Creations - lavender ribbon/bow
Craft-Dee Bowz - AG + handmade bow
Crafty Catz - 3. 2, 1 (3 designer papers, 2 different embellishments, 1 butterfly)
Crafty Gals Corner - AG
Cute as a Button - AG
