Donkey Smiles

Wahoo! I'm getting my take of the Midnight Madness Sketch posted BEFORE the last minute (or usually long after the challenge is over). This week's sketch was fairly simple to adapt and I had this large donkey image already printed and colored. With the cold snowy weather in the outside world, she makes me think of the lovely spring to come.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #85

Karen Doodles Challenge 44 ~ All that Glitters
Since my image is so large, it's hard to see the glittered cardstock in the background. I used several colors of stickles to make the image sparkle.

I received the confetti flowers and jewels in my stocking and was so excited to use both already.
