More Verve and Happy B-Day Nicole

I got a chance to finish the two remaining sketch challenges for Verve's 3rd Anni-VERVE-sary. I have to say the sketch three was a bit of a stinker! I'm very happy with how it turned out though. I painted the butterfly with Smooch Illuminate ink after coloring it with Copics, so it is very shimmery in real life. All the Verve Divas are doing an awesome job with the sneak peaks, so I REALLY hope I win a little something. My wallet could use the break!!!
