WOJ #72 - Sketch Challenge

It's WOJ Challenge Wednesday....YAY!  WOW you all made some gorgeous easel cards!  This week Bev has a fantastic sketch for you to try....remember you MUST use a WOJ image in order in be in the chance to win the prize! 
 I have used another cutie from the WOJ Store Kit....and have stepped outside the box and used some colors I normally don't use much.  At first when I had my markers picked to match my paper I thought this cute girl was going to look like a pumpkin (orange and green)....but I think she turned out pretty adorable.  Papers are the American Crafts Dear Lizzie collection.
Of course I used my Copics to color and then used the new Smooch Illuminate on the orange parts for a soft shimmer.  The background has been created with a $1 stamp I picked up the other day at Micheal's and stamped with Ranger pearl acrylic paint.  Added some spring flower soft to her flower pot.  Oh how I wish I could grow plants/flowers....I do NOT have a green thumb at all....so I just admire everyone else's! :)
I added a mixture of MS butterfly punches to decorate around the card.  The bigger butterflies were layered and I painted the top layer with Smooch Illuminate which you can see in this picture and the bottom butterfly was edged in Diamond Stickles.

I can't wait to see what you all create with Bev's amazing sketch!
