Sketch Saturday - Sketch # 274

My post needs to start with a fond farewell to Susie.  This is her last week as part of the DT - although she promises to come back as a guest.  Susie started the Sketch Saturday blog and has been with it through 274 weekly sketches (five years!).   I admire her vision and am indebted to her for selecting me to join the DT last spring.  Best wishes to Susie in the next chapter of her life.  There is good news, Sketch Saturday fans - Deb has volunteered to take on Susie's role, so the blog will continue!  Hurrah!

Onto the challenge post . . . Milk Coffee is this week's sponsor.  I am using one of their images called Soya and Dandelion.  Soya is colored with Copics and her wings are Stickled for sparkle.  Jen has another great sketch for us this week.  I hope you will play along.  Link up a card as a farewell thank you to Susie!
