SSSC #62 {Be Happy}

Good morning! I had a lot of fun colouring this wee Maisy Ketto last night, and am pleased that I might just make it into the challenge :) The colour for this card started with the ribbon. I went to Spotlight and bought some satin ribbons as I just couldn't wait until (or if) we get them in the IB&C in Oz. Then I chose this image because Maisy still seemed to be upright even on a tilted panel. Then the Dotted background was inspired by her dress...


Here is a close up of the colouring and Maisy's glittery wings.

And here is the fabulous sketch Karen gave up to work with.

How funny that we were the last two posters for this challenge and have used Ketto's to create such similar cards!! Aren't they gorgeous little darlings, I've just received my first few Ketto's and they are in a hurry to get inky. :)
I love, love, love the ribbon that you've used too!! And the background is perfect!! xx
