YNS Challenge #88: Special Delivery

Looking for something crafty to do this weekend?  Your Next Stamp's challenge #88 is going on right now!  Play along for the chance to win a YNS Store gift certificate!!!

I took inspiration from the sketch for this one and pulled in pink...

Lots of white and a bit of water coloring on the helicopter and clouds.   I am addicted to water coloring.  It has been a long time since I pulled out the Copics!

So which inspires you?  The sketch or the colors?
