It's Monday evening, and you know what that means....another Anita challenge that I'm running behind on!  LOL  I always seem to barely get these cards done in time, even though they are one of my favorite challenges.  How does that happen??

Anyway!  This week was a sketch challenge, and let me tell's AWESOME!  In fact, I think it might be my favorite Anita sketch yet.  Here it is:

Isn't that pretty??  I really like it!  So, here's my card:

The stamp is (of course) from Anita...the fairies, my favorite release!  =D  The background paper is a pale purple, and a pale aqua (the lighting on my camera kind of screwed up the colors a bit).  She was colored with Copics (her lips ARE colored, I promise!  Her make-up is the same color as the aqua in her outfit.) and Stickles were added to the wings.  Large purple flower is from Archivers, butterflies are from Recollections.

Thanks for taking a look!
