Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge

Good morning! It's time for another sketch from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog. Our sponsor this week is Lexi's Doodles and the image I'm using today is "Butterscotch Cupcake Fairy". As soon as I saw her, I knew she was the one...I couldn't wait to glitter up her wings and who doesn't love a cupcake with fudge icing piled high?!
When I chose the image, I really wasn't keeping the sketch in mind.... I had to figure out how I was going to make her work; I finally decided to cut her out. I was thinking she would be easy to cut out, but it ended up taking me a good 20 minutes! Note to self: Things always take longer than you think!
I included a close-up of her face and wings so you could see a bit more detail. Isn't her face pretty? Also, I colored the wings with a bit of pink and orange and blended it into the white before adding the glitter. They are really pretty in real life!

I almost chose this fairy image, too -- she's perfect for so many themes! Great combination of DPs (they coordinate beautifully with your blog background; popping the fairy off the image panel and placing the sentiment on one of the ovals are awesome spins on the sketch!!

This is a wonderful card. That fairy is just beautiful. I love how you made her the size of the card. Very nice job.

Love your colors. Cutting seems to throw a lot of people, but you did a great job. Your whole design very effective.
