Holiday Happiness - Ansley's Surprise!!

Sorry I have been slow with posting lately....there has been so many things going on. Today I spent a good deal of the day at the Dentist. I'm still recuperating...lol. It was a good holiday weekend...filled with lots of food and good company!!

The Gorgeous image in this card is called Ansley's Surprise from Wags 'n Whiskers and is a lovely gift from my good friend Lacey. The image was created by Crissy Armstrong inspired by Lacey's daughter Ansley and their fur baby Princess.

I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)* Going for the medal in repetition here..lol.

I've put glitter on Ansley's wings, headband and princesses bow. Added dots to the present with a gold sparkle pen and added a little glimmer to the ribbon with a stardust pen...(not very vi sable in the photo). The whole image panel is popped up over the green layer.

Paper - GP white, K&C Christmas, SU always artichoke. Ink - memento black, SU barely banana, creamy caramel. Accessories - Snowflake, flowers, brads, spacer, bling, tulle, MS snowflake punch, ribbon, CB corner.

Thanks for looking everyone....and your Lovely comments!!...I will be back with a Spooky Motivet card tomorrow!!
