FBW228 - A Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone - welcome back to Flutter By Wednesday.  This week we have a sketch by our FBW team mate Kathy:
To play, just use this sketch for inspiration and don't forget to include a butterfly or a fairy.  Then just link it directly to InLinkz on the Flutter By Wednesday blog.  While you  are there be sure to check out all of the inspiration from the FBW team!
I was inspired by the colors in outfit on the left in this Runway Inspired inspiration picture:
 

When I saw the circle in the sketch I immediately thought about this Just Rite stamp set.  The circle reminded me of the moon and the vertical strip down the left side reminded me of a tree trunk for the limb of the tree in the image!  So that is how my card came about - it took me a while to get the concept out of my head and onto paper!!  The tree frame die cut is from Memory Box - I cut it out of Kraft cardstock and then used a Woodgrain Background from PTI with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on it.  I did the out of the box Nestability technique to cut out the image which I colored with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.  I finished it off with some rhinestones from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for coming by!
