Cute Card Thursday and WT209

Hello and happy Thursday. I hope you are having a great day. It is freezing here again, a good day to stay indoors and work on challenges.
I decided to combine 2 challenges today, SCS's Ways to use it (Going Green), and Cute Card Thursday Challenge 51, a sketch. I hope you can play along in that challenge, they are having a celebration and are giving away lots of goodies!
Onto my card. The image was printed on GP white 110lb card stock with my ink jet printer and colored with alcohol markers (I use copic, prisma and blick studio). The image is availalble at the Digital Stamp Oasis . This one is called "Susie watering flowers". I sponged the white edges with soft sky ink, for a softer look. Since I can't seem to make a card without stickles, I added it to the polka dotted certainly celery designer paper, as well as to the flowers in the image and and the ribbon on Susie's hat. To finish the card off, I did some paper piercing, added the prima flowers with pearl centers and the jolee's boutique flower charm. For the sketch, I actually ended up turning the image. Oh, and the sentiment was made on my computer and printed in colors that match SU's basic gray and certainly celery, and punched out with SU's large oval punch. The pink is pink pirouette.
