Card For a Couple of Challenges

Hi again!  I'm back with another quick post because I am going to be busy the rest of the day and I knew I wouldn't get another chance to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do when I can.  My card is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #136-73, Craft Your Passion Challenge #92 (mythical creatures) and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge (spots &/or stripes). 

Here is the SSW sketch:

Here is my card for the challenges:

I started with a card base of Papertrey Spring Moss and layered with patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden 6x6 pad.  The papers had both spots and stripes.  My wonderful image is called Silver Fairy.  She is one of the Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet.  She can be found as a digi here.  I printed her on Cryogen White Iridescent and colored her with Copic markers. It's hard to see in the photo, but I added a bit of sparkle here and there with Stickles and Spica pens.  I kept my embellishments very simple so the image would be the focal point. I just added some Spring Moss ribbon and two Wild Orchid Crafts roses and that was it. 
Thanks for stopping by again!  There is lots going on for the weekend - a StampTV Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop tonight and the Create With TLC DT Blog Hop tomorrow (January 14, 8:30 AM PST). Hope you'll pop back for both!
