Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #79 ~ Sketch?

Good morning, we have our wonderful fortnightly challenge over at the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
It's a sketch challenge, although I might have to explain my interpretation of it lol...
I used the sketch as a jumping point to create my earth fairy on this card, 
started by drawing her using the profile head and torso, along with the long & fringe hairstyle. I've stamped her face in grey ink and painted her using watercolours.
I've given her a headdress of roses which is covering her pretty pointy ears...
I have gold embossed the outline, before adding watercolours in a fun blend.
the sentiment didn't fit in a straight line so I manipulated on the block into a curvy one.

Here, I wanted to demonstrate how close to the sketch she was in real time... by placing the sketch directly over my card.

I would like to share my card to these great challenges:
