Sweet Pea in Pink

Here's another Sweet Pea card.  I just love these images.  A little escape into fantasy land. :)   This image is called "In the Wind" by Ching Chou Kuik.  She looks so peaceful and serene.  I colored her with Prismacolor pencils, with Stickles added to the wings and Liquid Pearls on the moon.  Flutterby challenge this week had a sketch and that's what I followed.  Since I am severely ribbon challenged and can't make a bow look decent, I figured I couldn't mess up with seam binding since it's supposed to have a shabby look.  I dyed it Distress Inks, wadded it up and dried it, made a bow, and ~poof~...it looks pretty good! :)
