Shopping Our Stash #65

Hello again friends!  Today I have a card for the new challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This time we want to see you use a sketch.  Any sketch.  Just link back to the sketch you use in your post.  It can be a current sketch or an old one.  Pick your favorite and play along!

My sketch this week is from CLP.  Those ladies always have great sketches, I love playing along with them!
This time around I used an image from probably my favorite designer, Mo Manning.  Her images are so sweet and I just love this little fairy.  I have used Winter Fairy Talva before and I'm pretty sure I'll use her again.  I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and added fine glitter to the snowball and the lace under her skirt,  I also added glossy accents to the ice on her wings.
 This DP happens to be brand new.  Its from Basic Grey.  I know it isn't wintry but I think the whole thing works.  From my stash I grabbed: the brads, the sentiment stamp and the flower stamp around the edges of the DP, the big flowers and the lace.  Now, I haven't had the lace long.  I bought it about 3 weeks ago at a flea market.  There were several yards on a card and it was $1.  I had to have it!  And it is so vintage looking in person!  The green paper I embossed with my paisley folder, then brushed with a dark green ink.
 I used the sketch on the side with the writing panel.
I used the same stamp on the edges of the back.

I will be entering my card in the challenge over at CLP.

I think that's about it.  Be sure to check out what all the ladies have done at SOS this week and join the fun!  Thanks for taking a peek!
