Thanks Inge..I loved using your sketch!!

I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's to deepen the shading.The angels wings are glittered...although they don't show up very much in the photo. The Teacher and Believe are popped up. The apple is a brad from Tina (the owner of High Hopes)..Thanks Tina...it was perfect for this card!

Ink: versafine black, close to cocoa, ruby red, olive green

This is PRECIOUS! How long does it take you to make a card? They are all such works of art. I'll bet many of your recipients frame their Ila cards.
