Flowers with Aurora Wings

Hello everyone.
How are we all?  Good I hope?
Well it is time once again for another challenge at Through the Purple Haze
This time our theme is:
That should be a nice easy challenge for you.
Our fabulous sponsor is:
AuroraWings Blog Badge

I have used Mask of Flowers for this challenge.
Digital Stamp Instant Download - Floral Masquerade - digistamp - Mask of Flowers - Fantasy Line Art for Cards & Crafts by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff
Isn't she adorable?
Now, I knew that this would be a challenge to colour so I started it as soon as I downloaded it.
Do you know what?  I just couldn't put it down.
Once I started I just kept on going and going and going.
Once the image was coloured I thought I may as well carry on and make the card there and then.
It must be one of the few times I have been way ahead with a DT card I can tell you. Lol
So, I'll stop waffling and show you my project:
I know there are some awesome colourers out there but I am really proud of this one.
I used my Polychromo pencils to colour the image and then once it was finished I used my Copics to deepen some of the colours in places.
I can't stop looking at this image, there are so many details aren't there?
The gorgeous wavy ribbon I used is from the lovely Brenda at Brenda's Ribbon and Lace on Facebook. It is a secret group but if you are not a member already, you really should be as she has some awesome ribbon and lace. Tell her I sent you! 
The sentiment is a Clarity Stamp from one of their fabulous word chains and you can see them all here.
For the background I used two different shades of Pan Pastels chalk and a dabber to try and make it look a bit mottled. I think it worked don't you?

So there you go then, my Aurora Wings Flowers DT card.
I love it and hope you do too.
Can't wait to see your awesome entries.
