i {heart} sketches 60, Inspiration post and SOTM

Hi everyone!!
Time again for another i {heart} sketches challenge, which I bundled along with the weekly inspirational post AND the new SOTM image!
Let's see Flo from Progressive beat that bundle...LOL!
Anyway, here is this weeks sketch
Here is my spin on it
Along with the new SOTM image
I couldn't wait to use this image as soon as I seen it. And I really wanted to use my Copics on this one, but like I said before - I have a very limited number of colors so. I did the best with the colors I did have. Not quite as beautiful as Faith's colored image, but it turned out pretty good. I used my good ol' Gamsol & blue colored pencil for the 'border' as I am still not the best in shading w/my Copics yet.

Image: FTHS Spring Medley
Paper: Kraft cardstock , DCWV The Pocket Full of Posies Stack, DCWV Flower Shower Spring cardstock
Coloring Medium: Copic markers and Gamsol & colored pencil
Other Supplies: ek Success 1" square punch, Martha Stewart leaf punch, Prima flower
Sketch: Sketch 60
I hope I have inspired you!!
