Busy Beauties Challenge

Good morning!  I found this image for free over at DeviantArt, and decided I wanted to try my hand at coloring it because it reminded me of Alice Cullen from the Twilight books.  While I was at it, I decided to enter it into the Busy Beauties Creation Station Challenge I discovered while following a blog hop with the Burtonesque Dolls

I used my favorite patterned paper, K & Company "Life's Journey" and made a matching flower improvising on a previous flower tutorial I posted here.  I cut the brackets that were required as part of the sketch using the Stamped Cricut cartridge.  Let me know what you think!  It was really fun to make and actually went together fairly fast.

Shelley, your card is beautiful, I have never tried to do faces but you definitely have it master. What did you use? said...

I really like it! I need to learn to color with my unused copic markers!
