Whiff of Joy Katharina sketch challenge - 15

A wonderful sketch by Katharina is this weeks Whiff of Joy challenge. I decided to bring this little lady out to play before summer sets in (that is if it does!!) I coloured her with pastels. The backing paper was a gift from my S-i-l, it has now name on it so heaven only knows who it by. I had to make my own flowers - again. How is it, it doesn't matter how much stock you have there is at least one thing that is not quite the right colour or shade? I struggled photographing this due to bad light - even with a day light lamp!


Materials
Basic cardstock - Bazzill
Stamp - Whiff of Joy - Lizzie with chocolates
Derwent pastels
EK success retro flower punches
Leone Em branch punch
Cuttlebug + round nesties and tag from Harmony alphabet die set
Martha Steward Doily Lace punch
Rest from stash
