Flutter with a Sketch

Hi my Flutter By friends. This week we have a fantastic sketch by our own Kathy Curry for you to use. Here it is:

It's a great sketch, right? Sadly (hanging head), I left off the square. I, unfortunately, printed my image too large, so I ended up having to fussy cut it (otherwise, my circle would have been covered). My story (and I'm sticking to it) is the image is somewhat square in shape (look hard) so I didn't need the square (smile).

OK, enough with the excuses, it is time to share my card with you (in all its flawed glory - HA!). So here it is:

My beautiful image is "Fairy Nichole" from Wags and Whiskers. Isn't she lovely? I've colored her with Copic markers in green, pink and burgundy colors. The DP is from the Recollections pad called "Habitat." This is a lovely pad of papers (12 x 12" size), and I've used papers from it previously for one of my ADFD fairies. You may be seeing a lot of this paper (smile). I've added a burgundy velvet ribbon to the center of my side panel (thus, giving it the look of the two panels in the sketch), and the circle doily behind the fairy is also burgundy (although it photographed a bit brownish looking). I cut the circle with QuicKutz Nesting Floral Doilies die (DC0434 from Dutch Paper Crafts). The two DPs are matted with dark green card.

I hope you will use Kathy's sketch and join us this week in our challenge at Flutter By Wednesday. Remember, if our entries reach 100 or more, there will be a lovely prize. As always, your creation must have a butterfly or fairy on it.
