Fairy Tales

I made this card with an image from Aurora Wings.  I love all of her images.  At Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 we are supposed to use any sketch from this year and I chose this one.   I love using lavendars and aquas together.  I've got to get this finished before they close their challenge.  On my image, I colored her ear as hair because I did not at first think it was her ear, just hair and afterwards went and looked it up on the blog and it is definitely an ear so pretend it is!
