Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #101

Hi all,
A new challenge today at Crafting For All Seasons.
 
I must admit, that this is the first time I have ever used a sketch!!
I know.....a sketch virgin!!! And at my age too!!Lol!
 
I must also admit that it was fun to do!
  
Have you guessed the theme for this challenge?
Go to top of the class, all of you that said a sketch!!!
 
 
I used a mixture of Distress Inks and Copics, to colour this gorgeous image.
She is lovely and the butterfly is beautiful too.
 
Her name is - Charlotte and Butterfly - kindly given to us,
from our amazing Sponsor - Milk Coffee
 
The paper match is a complete fluke! I had already coloured
the image, before looking for papers.
I know.... I keep telling myself that I should choose papers first!!!!
 
I had some quick stock cards on my desk, waiting to be put together.
I spotted a piece of paper sticking out the pile.
I pulled it out and found I had 2 pieces together.
So I had one for the quick card and one for this one and...
....all the colours matched, even the green dot!!
Now that is just too weird!!

 
This is the sketch for you to use for your entries.
