Sunday Blog Hop with a Super Saturday Challenge sketch!

Happy Paper Makeup Blog hop! I am so honored that I am part of Katie's first ever blog hop release. Be sure to check out all the blogs for all the excitement, the party over at Paper Craft Planet and her new releases today, yay Katie!!!
For my card I used the one and only Penelope. Isn't she the most serene Asian fairy? Oh my word, I love this image. Very calm and so in control. *sigh. I want to be like her!!
I used our Super Saturday Challenge sketch courtesy of sketchlovers.com. and Melissa, who is hosting our weekly challenge. Here is the sketch:

I made her a fan with a new Asian paper sample that I recieved from my buddy Heather and to hold the folds together, I used SU's twine. The ribbon has been in my stash for the longest time, and I finally had the perfect opportunity to use it! Penelope is colored in copics and prismas (yes, I don't know if that's a no-no but in my house they are all friends, teehee!) and stickles were used on her wings. There's pearls at the bottom of her red cording and her Jade pi pendant has a light crystal effects glaze on it. The red cardstock was run through my CB with the textiles folder and in a desperate search for a silver buckle to compliment her wings, I used a soda tab that I keep seeing in people's cards. (Look past that little detail please because I don't know if I did it right!)
For our Super Saturday Challenge, I can't wait to see your creations using this sketch! Please leave a post either here or on Mel's blog and upload your creation into SCS' gallery under BLOGC5 so we can all oooh and ahhh over it. And don't forget to stop by Gabby's and Mel's to see their incredible work as well!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone~ Love and Aloha*
