And now onto my card for the day:

When I saw this beautiful image by Caron Vinson, I just couldn't wait to ink it up. This particular image is called Royal Flower and I think she's absolutely gorgeous! I colored the image with copics and then sponged lightly around the image with SU's Pretty in Pink ink using my Tim Holtz blending tool. Next I added some Stardust Stickles to her wings and to her dress. I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is also from SU. For some finishing touches, I added a bow, pearls, dew drops, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Your next stop on the hop is the fabulously talented Connie Piotter. See you all back here tomorrow for some more holiday cards.
