This is my card for this week's Designed2Delight challenge and also for the Double Delight challenge found  this digi image along with adding some sparkle.

After I printed the digi image, I set the ink using my heat gun and then I colored it using my SU markers.  I added a few dots on her shirt using my white gel pen and her face was water colored using my SU crayons and blender pen.  I didn't use my marker on her face because SU markers tend to be a bit rich/deeper color for skin tone.

The wings are really glittery in person.  I colored them first with my SU markers and then I went over that with my VersaMarker and I lightly dusted SU's Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, and set that using my heat gun.  I actually did this step twice and it's super glittery.  If you click on my photo it will enlarge my photo and you might be able to see it a little better.

My background is embossed using my cuttlebug embossing folder that I got from the Winter Wonderland package (it's a set of 6 embossing folders).  I actually embossed my background the first time and then I turned the folder around and embossed it again so that my entire background would become embossed.  I had to do this because this particular embossing folder only has a design on part of it.

For the lower portion of my card I used a small scrap of SU dp that I found in my scrap bin and on top of that I've added my white ribbon.  Just along the bottom of my card I decided to add three rows of paper piercing. 

I hope you like my card and thanks for taking the time to stop on by! See you tomorrow!
