My first DT card for Winter Wonderland Challenge - A sketch

Hello and Welcome!
I hope your Sunday is going well and that you're doing what you love, whatever that may be! Today is my first posting as an official DT member for the Winter Wonderland challenge blog! This week, Pascale has challenged us with a sketch so be sure to pop on over and join in with the fun!
I came across Karen's Doodles this week - wow - what an amazingly talented artist/illustrator! Be sure to check out her blog - her images are gorgeous! She has a 400 follower freebie giveaway going on too so you get to choose any free image from her collection. I chose this one - isn't she just a darling little angel? I coloured her with my copics and used the gorgeous Magnolia paper from the christmas collection as my background. I pulled colours from there to work with on the image. The strip of music paper is also Magnolia. The sweet hydrangea flowers are from stash as is the lace and corner embellishment. The sentiment is from my stash (sorry, can't remember the company). I tweaked the sketch very slightly to make it work on my card (hope that's ok!!).
So, there you have it. Thanks a bunch for popping over today and be sure to check out the rest of the fabulous DT's creations - they're all so inspiring! I appreciate your visit and any comments that you may leave! Enjoy the rest of your day ....
Hugs,
Danielle x

Danielle: Oooh, you made my drawing of the "God's Little Angel" look beautiful! I love the coloring and the papers are gorgeous. Yes, you can tweak the image, re size, flip it and because my images come with a transparent background, you can even combine it with other images. That's the beauty of digi's :-)
Hugs, Karen (Karen's Doodles)
