Ready or Not---Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

aThe Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week is hosted by the awesome talented Dawn who chose a sketch for her theme.  Have I mentioned I love sketch challenges?  LOL  I think so , a couple of times!!! Here is my creation:

Isn't this just the cutest image called Aunt Flo, isn't she a hoot..  I think we all have an Aunt Flo LOL.  I colored the image with copic markers and airbrushed a little too lightly it appears in the photo :) with grey and blue trying for a photographer type background.  Here is the sketch we are to follow:

The sketch is easy to follow, not complicated at all with an oval which I cut out with my cricut as I didn't have a die that big and mounted Aunt Flo behind the oval which I outlined with some pretty white woven lace.  The center card band was created using a narrow band of grosgrain  ribbon and a top and bottom layer of lace. 
A white bow atop a trio of beautiful roses and a pearl topped photo corner finish my portrait of Aunt Flo who always inspires the phrase, "Ready or Not, Here I Come"......

Be sure to stop by the Mo's Digital Pencil Store and check out all the new images which include a lot of beach images for your merging pleasure.  Lots of new kids and...go check it out, you will be glad you did.
The DT has some wonderful creations for this challenge so be sure to check out the Challenge Blog and our GD Debbie is participating so leave her a little love :)

Have a great day.

Aunt Flo is one of Mo's images that I don't have!
I adore your card. You have used the perfect paper and embellishments to go with her.
A little antique I think :o)
OHHHH what beautiful lace!! Wish I could find a place to buy some.
Your flowers are awesome as is your colouring. I think your airbrushing is just 'right'.
Hugs, Candy
