Hi there!  It's me again!  I'm back with a second post today.  You can tell I am catching up after my weekend away!  I'm here now with a card for a couple of challenges I wanted to do and actually found the time to make the card.

Here is my card:

Sorry about the darkness of the photo.  I am having some trouble with my camera at the moment.  My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden 6.5 x 6.5 pad.  The beautiful image is Sisterhood by AuroraWings.  Mitzi generously shared it as a freebie for the grand opening of her challenge blog.  I printed it on Hammermill Digital Color Cover Stock and colored with my Copics.  I added some Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle.  A bit of satin ribbon and a few flowers from my stash finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by again.  I'll be around in a few to visit.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge #1 (anything goes)
Craft Your Passion Challenge #206 (for Mother's Day or a special woman)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (twist: fairies or mermaids; use any SSW2 sketch; I used #05.)
