The 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown!


Hi Ho!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! We've been away all day! I didn't think I was going to get to play along in the 2Sketches4You challenge! So when I had a chance to craft a little afterall, my focus was set!
I used this lovely fairy and glam-ed her wings up a bit! She's colored with Prisma pencils & markers. The rich colors are navy and mustard. The DP is digi paper from Ellie Lash. The punches are MS scallop and SU! small star. Star gems and ribbon are from my stash! Laura created a fabulous sketch for this great contest!
You have until midnight June 6th (U.S. mountain time) to submit your card. Wishing them a wonderful first anniversary!!!
Bye for now and Blessings to all who read here!
