Smile - Midnight Madness

This card was made using the sketch over at Midnight Madness. This is the second time I have entered this challenge and I just love this sketch.

I chose Susan, a stamp by Elisabeth Bell only available at Susanna's Custom Art and Card Design. I won this set from her earlier in the year and it is awesome. I also won a hand drawn Elisabeth Bell image as part of the prize!

Here is the front of the card. I folded the card so that it opens in the center and the image on the front sits over the top. I added a little 'handle' on the right side of my image to open the card with.

I colored her with Copics and added Flower soft to her flowers. Here is a close up.

The inside of the card uses plum, orange and green and has a sentiment that says Smile. This is the same dp from my previous post and the sentiment was included with the set.
I added a bow to the right side and covered the back of my image so that it was one big area.
