Girl with the Swans

It's finally Friday!  Looking forward to the weekend!!

Today's card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC62). This beautiful stamp is an old one from Stamps Happen. 

They sold out a few years ago, and I'm not sure this stamp is still available. 

I colored the image with Copic Markers.  The papers are Cosmo Cricket.  The flowers are from a silk bush that I pulled the leaves and flowers from.  I used dark brown and tan twine for the bow.  I bought the little colored tiles at a convention here in Buffalo last year. I loved working with this sketch.

Hope you have a great Friday.  Thanks for stopping by for a look.  Until later..............

Holy Guacamole!!!! This is just spectacular. What a gorgeous image so beautifully executed on this card. I love you fabulous embellishments and beautiful paper. My breath was taken away twice visiting your blog. Seeing the Blue Angels above Niagara Falls did the first time, and your card did it the second time. I am now ready to go use my nebulizer!!! lol Great job with the sketch this week. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Oh my. Your colouring - I just don't have words! It's an artwork, not a coloured image!
Beautiful card, such a gorgeous design!
