Sketch Saturday - Sketch #277

This week's Sketch Saturday card features another sweet Lili of the Valley fairy from my black and white sketch pad purchase.  A new 6 x 6 pad of My Mind's Eye papers from Michaels provided my color palette.  I wanted to bring a pop of color into the card, so I chose coral and colored her hair garland and brought the color into the wand and a strip of paper on the diagonal line of the sketch.

Here's a close up of this Dandelion Fairy.  I used Perfect Pearls for the flower centers and Stickles on the wings.  Surprisingly, the photo caught the shimmer of the Stickles.  I wasn't sure about the diagonal paper strip.  It's got many of the other colors in the papers.  Overall, I think the coral works - don't you?

Bunny Zoe Crafts is our sponsor this week.  I hope you will play along with this fun sketch!
