Picking Flowers

I made this card for Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge #70 which is a sketch challenge.  I flipped the sketch so the embellishments would fit better alongside the picture.                                            
 For some reason, I could not get the colors in the skirt to blend at all.  I may have printed the image on the wrong cardstock.  That could cause that problem.  I normally use Neenah Solar White, which is great for Copics.  I also have an inexpensive package of cardstock from Staples that I basically use it for anything that doesn't need to be colored.  I may have used that accidently.  The ink soaks in before it can be blended.

The paper is from Stampin' Up.  The flowers and lace were from my stash.  The greenery was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

Copics:  B12, B14, C1, E00, E02, E31, E97. E99,  G21, G24, R22, Y17, YR12
