Make a Wish

Good afternoon my crafty friends.  Hope you are all having a good day.  It's not sunny where I am but it is kind of warm and it's trying to rain.

I got this lovely image for my card from Aurora Wings.  I'd wanted this one for a while because I can see so many colour combinations with it.

Here she is....






Now imagine this in pinks, purples, oranges etc. etc. lol.

She is coloured in with my pro markers.
I have used silver mirri card to frame and this was really hard to photograph.
The papers are Prima Zephyr.
Sentiment is from my dragonfly decoupage stamp set from Imagination Crafts.
