Friday Sketcher's and DP2 challenges

I was incredibly lucky enough to win challenge 13 on DP2 challenge and got to choose one of Mo's amazing digi images as a prize!! It took me ages to decide but I finally settled on this adorable "Flossie and her doll". Gorgeous isn't it!? I have used the wonderful sketch at Friday Sketcher's challenge and the colour combination at DP2 challenge which is white, bashful blue, almost amethyst and elegant eggplant.
I have coloured Flossy with copics and distressed around the edge of the image with walnut stain distress ink and stickles. The sentiment I have written with a silver gel pen.
The lilac rose is from Hobby Craft and the small white ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts. They've been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and I've added a few white branches punched with my MS branch punch.
The gorgeous spotty ribbon and the pearls are from my local craft shop, Running With Scissors and the butterflies have been punched with MS monarch butterfly punch. I coloured the edges lightly with a copic, blended in and then covered them in stickles.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

A beautiful card Jane and congrats on winning the challenge, you've chosen a lovely image from Mo. Love all the pics and your explanations. I'm not having such good luck with my close ups, they are blurry. This is causing me huge frustration. Have a super crafting week, hugs Sharon x
