Crimson Illusion

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  I'm all mixed up today because of the long weekend.  I keep thinking it's Monday!  Anyway, I'm here with a quick post this evening to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing. 

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Island Indigo and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Collectable "Unforgettable" 6x6 pad.  The beautiful digi image is Crimson Illusion by ching chou kuik.  You can find it in the Sweet Pea Stamps store.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the toadstools.  A few Wild Orchid Crafts Cherry Blossoms, a taffeta bow and a chipboard butterfly from Make it Crafty finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be by to visit later after dinner.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch N Stash Challenge #140 (sketch; I flipped it)
Deep Ocean Challenge #78 (wings)
Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenge #11 (fairy tale or fantasy)
Sweet Pea Stampers (things with wings)

Here is the sketch:
