Curtain Call Color Challenge: {Act #62} and a Sketch...

I was so excited that I finally got some time to sit down and create a card tonight! I used a beautiful fairy image from Mo Manning that I recently colored in. I already had the image and all I needed was some inspiration for a color palette and a sketch. So I used the awesome sketch from this week's Friday Sketchers challenge...or I should say last weeks, as the deadline ended for this one tonight. And for the colors I used the palette from this weeks Curtain Call challenge. This was my first time using a color challenge for my card which made it even more challenging...but I think it went perfect for the colors I chose to color in the image with!

Here's a closeup...

I'm really loving how the closeups are turning out with my old camera! I totally forgot that when I original started using it...I wasn't very advanced in my photography

And for the inside I used the same gorgeous DP and stamped a beautiful sentiment from "MSE" and embossed it with my new kaleidoscope embossing shimmery!!

PAPERS: Mocha brown and white cardstock, DP is from "Me & My Big Ideas".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The beautiful image is a digi stamp from "Mo's Digital Pencil" and the sentiment is from "MSE" (My Sentiments Exactly), handstamped and embossed w/Kaleidoscope powder from "Stampendous". The sentiment says: "The love in your heart wasn't put there to stay, love isn't love 'til it's' given away!"
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with PrismaColor Pencils and a Gamsol technique was used. Moss Green pigment ink from "ColorBox" was used to stamp the sentiment.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Vintage lacy blue and white ribbon, aqua blue "Dew Drops", mocha brown Mulberry Paper roses and leaves from "Recollections", white and blue fabric flowers and a beautiful handmade cherry blossom chiffon flower with a sweet white faux pearl made by "ABespokeTouch" on Etsy.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with a metallic sandy color thread. Part of the background was embossed with the 'Victoria Lace' embossing folder and "Cuttlebug" machine. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added for to the image and flowers for sparkle!
