DCD Challenge #90 - Sketch Time!

Hi folks, well it is Monday again and that means it is time for our next Bi-weekly challenge at Die Cut Dreams.  I would just like to say a big thank you to all those who entered our last challenge, we had some fabulous entries once again - we really do appreciate all your support at Die Cut Dreams.
So, what's the next challenge I hear you call!!
This time we have a sketch for you to follow and that sketch was designed by ME!
Now this is the first sketch I have done for a challenge so I hope you all like it.  Hop on over to the Die Cut Dreams challenge blog and have a look at the sketch and what our fabulous design team have done with it.
Here is my take on the sketch anyway:

I have used a Karen Middleton stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps (sheet 3 Plate 114) - isn't she just adorable.  I have coloured the image using my Prismacolour pencils and have added Crystal Glamour Dust to the image to give it a bit of bling - well you gotta have glitter with fairies don't ya??

The image is cut out and placed on one of Susie's fabulous Die Cuts from her shop Die Cut Dreams. (You'll remember that it is closed at the moment because Susie is moving house but I'll let you know when she re-opens).
The papers are from a K and Company paper pad called Classic and a Papermania Signature pack called Regency.
I added a stamped sentiment, some flat backed gems and three Mesh flowers for a bit of bling.  The flourish is a Marianne Creatable die.  So there you have it, I hope you like it and that it has inspired you to join in with our sketch challenge this time.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave me some love before you go so I know you popped in.
