Hi Chris, what a wonderful image! Love that wide-eyed look and the sparkle you've added to her wings. The layers of patterns in the background and on the tag behind her are a marvel. So different and yet they compliment each other so well. Love the gorgeous flowers and ribbon, too. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

What a delightful image for your Mystical Creatures. She's wide eyed indeed, and coloured so perfectly. The gossimer sparkle on her wings and the beautiful tag in the background really are nice details. Thanks for playing along with us at the Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Challenge this week.

Your little nymph is darling and you have colored her so beautifully. Lavender is the perfect color for those "Betty Davis" eyes and her sparkly wings are gorgeous. Beautiful card!
