The Sketchy Challenges DT - Cordine's Sketch

We have a stunning sketch for you this fortnight at The Sketchy Challenges created by Cordine!!  We are sponsored by the amazing Krista from Saturated Canary and she has very kindly offered all of the DT an image to play with for this challenge!!  Thank you so much for your generosity Krista!  I chose the gorgeous "Windy Day" for my card.  The paper is by Magnolia.  The stunning ribbon is from The Ribbon Girls and the lace was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Louise.
 I have coloured the image with copics, and to me, she just had to be on a beach flying her kite so I also sketch in a little beach scene around her with copics.
 Here's a little close up of the beach, sea and distant shore.  You can create a quite convincing sparkly sea with just a few strokes of a pen and leaving a lot of white!
 The sentiment is from Magnolia, stamped onto a scrap of paper from my stash and the butterflies were cut from some Webster's Pages paper.
 For a bit of texture I added some crumpled antique book pages behind the image.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at The Sketchy  Challenges!   Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  Thanks for looking! x

Oh Jane, is a FANTASTIC card. The colors have impressed me and I could not have resisted to write to you a few lines. This is my fab stamp from saturated (I´ve got a digis only, but when I´ll buy a stamp will be this)
