A New Beginning with a Sketch and some Color

Happy New Year! In honor of the new year, Paper Play Challenges has a challenge this week that is New Beginnings which could be a new home, a new baby, a marriage. I chose the new baby theme and combined it with CPS Challenge this week which was to use any of their sketches from this past year. I chose sketch #130. If you like sketches, you might want to check them out because there is a link to all of the year's sketches which can be printed for a nice reference to have on hand. I also used the colors from the Colour Create Challenge which were lemon and lime.
My image is Ellie the Elephant which is available at StretchNBubbles. The DP is DCWV "nana's kids" pack. I colored her with my Copics and dotted her with lime green paint dots.
