Sugar Plum Fairy

Here is my latest card.  I just loved coloring this image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  She is called a sugar plum fairy, but I thought she could look very springy if colored in the right hues.  I think she turned out beautiful.  Here are the details:

Image:  Sugar Plum Fairy by Mo's Digital Pencil.  After coloring with my pencils I added several colors of Stickles:  Diamond on the ruffle, Cotton Candy on the sugar plums, and Raspberry on the wings.
Papers:  BoBunny from my scrap bin & Raven card stock
Extras:  I made the black "lace" with a border punch and Raven card stock; flowers were Prima and punched from handmade papers; black ribbon, black rhinestone flourishes by Recollections; and black Cat's Eye chalk ink on most edges.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Positioning Systems #262
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - #160 Loaded with LAYERS!
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C133:  adding black card stock
Mo's Digital Challenge - #131 Flowers!
