Beautiful Life Asian Marci Twist Card

For my Niece's birthday, I wanted to make a special card. Inspiration and card tutorial from Jennifer D - her blog post here. Stamps and dies used are  ONLY available from being a monthly subscriber of La-la Land Crafts. Shimmer card base is using Core-dinations lavender. Decorative Washi paper can be purchased from Hanko Designs found here. All other papers from Recollections.
La-la Land Crafts Stamps used:
Happy Critters (La-la Land Crafts Add-on July Kit) for inside message.
Beautiful Life Marci (July Kit)
La-la Land Craft Dies: Cherry Blossom Branch, Cherry Blossom Fan (July Kit), Cherry Blossom Border (July Kit), Temple (July Kit), Mini Cherry Blossom (July Add-on Kit).
Other Dies used:
Jaded Blossom Stitched Circles
Die-namics (My Favorite Things) Stitched Circle Stax

 Copic colors for Marci:
Face: E000, E00, E01, E02, E11, R11, R20, R21
Hair: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
Obi: V20, V25, V99
Dress: V17, V20, V25, V99, R81, Clear Wink of Stella
Fan: R00, R81, V25, V20, V99, Clear Wink of Stella
Crown: W0, W2, Clear Wink of Stella
 Put the die cut Cherry Blossom Fan around the circle to create this border:
Die cut and pop Cherry Blossom Branch with foam squares, then adhere paper flowers using a hot glue gun.  Use Copic V20 to color two of the flowers. Finally brush Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers. 
 Temple die is popped.  Add some die cut Mini Cherry Blossoms (from the July Add-on Kit) to the Temple. Pearl Viva Pen is used for the flower centers.
 Crown, Hair sticks, and flower centers have been brushed with Clear Wink of Stella.
 Use a White Gel pen on the fan and dress. Dot the fan with Clear Wink of Stella.
 Here is the front edge view:
 Slowly open the card to reveal:
