Lady in Green - Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Welcome to another Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge. We have a fabulous sketch and wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge so let's get right to it!

Here's the sketch that Arlana created and I think it's gorgeous. What a unique look and it really makes for a stunning card.
The challenge this week is sponsored by A Day For Daisies - one of my favorite digi stamp companies. The Grand Prize Winner of the challenge this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday will receive a $12 gift certificate to the A Day For Daisies shop.

This gorgeous image from A Day For Daisies is called "Green Lady" - so of course I had to color her in green! I used Copic markers for that and then sponged a very pale pink ink in the background to make her pop. I used lime green Stickles on the flower centers and drops of her beautiful headress.

The papers are from Basic Grey - Kioshi and Marjolaine - and that's what I used on the handmade flower too.  The lace was originally white but I colored it with Copics to match the colors in the image. Some rhinestones and a rhinestone brad for the flower center are the finishing touches.

To see more images from A Day For Daisies used with the fabulous sketch this week, please visit the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog. There's a lot of inspiration there from our design team you'll not want to miss!

Thanks for stopping by!
