2 challenges in 1 card = Smooches!

I saw the FFF sketch on TGF Blog and it spoke to me so I just had to make this card! I colored up this fabulous Cheeky Mate last night - I have to say I'm VERY pleased with the way she came out. I'm trying to do different ethnic skin tones & it's definately pushed me to challenge myself more with Copic blending, etc. I've had this paper for awhile & it was just what this card needed. I think I will send this off to OWH. I have to say, I made a little boo-boo when I was inking the edges I got some on my fingers and moved my image around and wouldn't you know I left a nice smudge so I used the flowers to camoflage it. LOL Now I love them and it must've been meant to be b/c I was not thinking of using any embellies! The sentiment is from PTI Handwritten Notes set. I'm also submitting this to Anyone for Anya? anything goes challenge - altho I'm always getting in my submissions so late! LOL
