Sketch Saturday - Sketch #296

Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring Jen's sketch this week for Sketch Saturday.  I decided to go big on this one, so my card is larger than 4.25 x 5.5.  I used a  Dilly Beans  image called  #432 Elly Framed.  The eyes and hair were so much fun to color.  I used the sketch to create a shaker card for Valentine's Day; this one for my oldest grandaughter.  The girls were at my house when I was coloring and patiently stood and let me see where light was reflected on their faces. Being able to study them helped me in the coloring, especially around the eyes and nose.  Hope you'll join us this week at Sketch Saturday.  Pop by the blog and see what Guest DT member Marilyn and the rest of the gals have done with this week's sketch!
