Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge - I won a booby prize in her recent hop!

I have been admiring the fabulous digital creations of Maurie J Manning for some time but I never seemed to find the opportunity to peruse her shop (see Digital Pencil Too) until recently.  Then last week I joined in a celebratory blog hop with her and her team and I WON THE BOOBY PRIZE!   Thank you, Mo!   So, now that I am equipped with a number of her stunning images it seemed only appropriate to enter this week's challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil which is a sketch.  Oddly I found this sketch difficult to work with but I managed it in the end and I'm pleased with the result although next time I print one of these images I will make it larger. 
Mo puts so much fine detail into her delightful images and the quality of her drawings are so delicate that I found it really hard to colour having printed it too small!  Suddenly the fine brush tips of my Copic Sketch markers felt like giant white-board markers in my hand!
Now, given that it is nearly March, I already feel I am getting behind in my Christmas Cards for this year and I opted for a non traditional soft teal and yellow colour scheme for Christmas Fairy Holly.  Isn't she sweet? !
Papers are K&Co and ribbon and pearls are from my stash.  Thank you for stopping by.
