Sketch n Stash with LOTV as a Thank You

Our friend Anna sells THE most beautiful freshwater pearl jewellery at absolutely stunning prices.  Her shop is called "Moody Tom".   You can also find her on Facebook.   She sells really exquisite necklaces, earrings, bracelets on line and through hostess parties but Hubby and I pop in for a visit a couple of times a year.   We always go to buy gifts for others but I also can't help buying things for myself or recommending to Hubby that there is an item (or three) that would make lovely presents for me for Christmas (which is coming!), my birthday or an anniversary, etc.  We made a visit just before our recent holiday and in addition to the gifts we went for - true to form - a number of items fell into my personal shopping bag.   
Anna even created some jewellery especially for me and sent it on afterwards.  My parcel just arrived and I wanted to send a little thank you to her.
This lovely previously uninked LOTV image called "Mirror mirror" seemed just right for the occasion.  I coloured my image just a little with Copics and layered her up on some Stampin Up and Recollections papers with my most recently purchased sentiment (also LOTV), using Sketch no 29 at Sketch N Stash.
I gave my little girl a Perfect Pearls necklace, earrings and bracelet and glazed her patent leather shoes
I am entering my card into the chalenge at LOTV.   They want us to use "green, red and white".
I am also entering the challenge at Sketch N Stash where we can select any sketch from their library.
