Sorry about the rubbish photo of this card.  I don't know why suddenly my cards are coming out so dark as I have all the lights on including my daylight lamp.  Maybe the camera has got too old, they don't make anything to last these days...

Anyway, back to my card.  I layered my card following the great sketch using silver mirri card which I embossed with a folder, and some of my favourite digi paper.  I then added a punched border which I topped with silver glitter ribbon.  I coloured my image with promarkers as usual and cut it out with a die using the 'out of the box' method.  I then layered this before attaching with foam pads.  I then glittered her wings for even more sparkle.  A simple die-cut swirl was added next topped with flowers and pearls.  A die-cut corner, sentiment, butterfly and a few more pearls finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Oh Christine this is absolutely gorgeous I do love that image of Tilda, that mirri card really shows up with that embossing, the use of die cuts is excellent so is the colour and design.
