Doubling Up On Challenges Today

What a fantastic day it has been here in Missouri. The sun finally peeked through the clouds, no humidity, temp was about 65, just a perfect day!!!

As most of you know, I don't usually submit more than one challenge at a time but because I'm having a terrible time seeing until my new glasses arrive on Friday (I HOPE!) it's easier for me to combine them if at all possible.  Of course, I get confused on which challenge I"m doing and never know for sure if I've met the requirements or not...lol

This card if for the challenge at Bronte and Bella's (Mo's) Digital Challenge blog  (1 Ribbon - 2 Buttons or Brads - 3 Designer Papers) and Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog (Sketch)

I've been wanting to color this fantastic image by Mo Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil Shop for a long time. The first time I saw her was on a card made by Rachel Jakes and I fell in love with her. No way could I ever color her as beautiful as Rach colored her but I figured it was about time I gave it a try.  Thanks Rach for inspiring me to step out of my comfort zone.

Recipe: DP Basic Grey/Bittersweet Pad & Bazzill -  Memento Black Ink - Ribbon & buttons from stash - Prima Flower from Wild Orchids Crafts with Angel Wings Shimmerz added - Copics: R81, 83, 85, 89 - E11, 01, 00, 000 & R20 - C1, 0, 000 - E43, 44, 47,49 - Angel Wings Shimmerz was added to her wings to give them that extra glow. Since I really not a big fan of sewing on cards I added a small prima rose to the center of the buttons.

Here is the sketch by Jo from the Sweet Stampin Blog
Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.  If you have the time to leave me a comment I'll hop on over to your blog to see what's new and your lovely creations.
