An Angel Among Us

When I was a child, we used to pick little yellow flowers that we called buttercups.  We would smell them and make a wish.  If you got yellow on your nose, your wish would come true.  So, when I saw this precious little darling smelling a 'buttercup,' I had to make a card with her!
Stamps:  Penny Black - An Angel Among Us, and critter party (make a wish).  The swirl along the left edge is from PB's scrolls die set.

I hadn't used my Tombow markers in a while, so I brought them out to play to color her.  For the background, I used them as watercolor.  In real life, the wings and the ruffle of her dress, and the scroll die are shimmering with Spectrum Noir clear sparkle.

I hope you will join us at Penny Black Saturday Challenge.   The theme is always 'Anything Goes.'  This month's optional prompt is 'Baby.'  So, when you make your baby or any other Penny Black card, enter it.  You just may win a $20 gift certificate from our sponsor,
