Which Challenge ???

I do so wish I could remember which challenge I made this card for!!!  If anyone can tell me I would be eternally grateful, I've searched everywhere and can't find anything remotely like it. I started off trying to leave lots of white space, but as usual this diminished as the card grew!!

The image is of course Sweetpea, coloured with Copics. I glittered her wings using a mixture of Frosted lace and Stardust stickles and added liquid pearls to her hair adornments, bracelet and waistband. I used the Scorpal to emboss the pattern on the white background paper, played around with the Nesties labels 13 to create a base for the image to sit on, this then looked unbalanced so I added a band across the middle cut with the MS around the page punch and used this also to create the corners. White space now rapidly disappearing so add a little more white with the ribbon and bow across the band. At this point I had to force myself to stop before there was no white space visible anywhere.

Copics used
Hair  Y0000, E02,  E70, E71, E77
Skin YR0000,  E00, ROO 
Dress and Wings  BV0000, BVOO  BVO2, BV04

If anyone looks at this and see's which challenge I was creating this card for - please let me know.

I'm sure it  was Crazy4Challenges although this was one of these card that goes it's own way - I didn't have much say in the matter and now only faintly resembles the sketch, but thank you girls you led me to another one Crafts and Me. Lesson learnt, bring my challenge list up to day and make a note of the challenge/s I'm working on.

Right now to the boring stuff, washing, cleaning and all that time stealing stuff.
