Seems a Little Sketchy Challenge~Sketch #16

This will be my second post as a DT member of the Seems a Little Sketchy Team and I'm so excited that we have been sponsored by the great Company, Whoopsie Daisy!  She has given each of the Design Teams a group of darling digi's to use on our cards and I hope my card will inspire you to take another look at her site!
I am paring up my adorable fairy with the Sketch #16 provided by SALS with a little variation.  It makes it so simple when you have a template to follow-be sure and check out the past sketches to get even more ideas! 
I'm just drawn to the colors pink and green so you will find them in her stockings, hair flowers, and leafy petals of her skirt.  I did her wings in a pale Copic blue and then accented the swirls with Diamond Skittles. I love the tapestry floral print BG paper, layered a swirly pink shimmery paper block under the digi mat, used a delicate paper punched ribbon instead of a regular ribbon, and added oversized buttons with polka-dot raspberry satin ribbon in their centers.  This 6x6 card has such a versatile use-sending love, best wishes, get better soon, small childs' card-I really like when I can add a verse and it's ready for any occasion.
Be sure to take a look at this challenge-they run every 2 weeks starting on Mondays and always have terrific sponsors with super prizes!  Whoopsie Daisy this challenge is giving away 2 SHEETS of choice digi's from their website.  How great, right?  Thanks for looking and I hope to see you on the SALS Blog!  Carolyn
