Crissy Armstrong has done it again!!!

Enjoy this Beautiful image~~Touched By Love 
Colored Touched by Love image with Copics!!  Used moonlight smooch and frosted lace stickles on her wings and smooch only on blanket binding.  Red AtYou Spica pen glitzed her sock, sleeve cuff and earring :)  Added stars on upper edge of image with dot of stardust stickles
Below is the sketch I used~~~~~~BSC #15
This Whimsy digi is sooooo very sweet that I don't think I can part with this card :)
Isn't this a Christmas Beauty to Cherish~~Little prejudice wouldn't you say LOL
The gold background is a tan CS that was texturized with Quickutz snowflake folder and then spritzed with Tsukineko Gold Shimmer Spritz~~Such elegance :)  Dp are the scrumptious SU Deck the Halls pack.  
Flowers made with Marianne Creatable Dies and Sizzix snowflake die~~all inked with TH walnut stain and edges with stardust stickles.  Centers are Paper Studio brads :)  Finished with crystal spray and pearl swirls

Here you can see all the sparkle and shimmer of the smooch, stickles and especially the gold shimmer spritz on background CS~~OOooooo I like!!  If you click to enlarge you will really see what I mean :)

Inside of card is a SB beaded circle for personal message with inked edges and glitzed with Viva Glitter liner pens.
