Lili of the valley Thursday challenge 2: Nikki's sketch

I came across the new Lili of the valley Thursday challenge blog (recognise some of the names and particularly Nikki from other forums and challenges). I missed challenge 1 - I might still do this - but thought I'd join in challenge 2, which is a sketch by Nikki:

I've used BG sugared for the background, a piece of cuttlebug embossing and a stamped image that I got in a swap on CBC and coloured in with inktense pencils, a bit of sticky ribbon and a bit of Brenda Pinnick chippie and the sentiment, which isn't very clear on the scan: 'Thought this might brighten your day'.

Apart from brightening the day of the recipient, I needed something to brighten my day. It's been wet and windy here, so we didn't go out to church this morning. We thought it might be better this afternoon so that we could go to the 5 pm service, but it's still horrible out there, so we're staying put, so it doesn't seem like a Sunday.
