Fancy Midnight Madness

I really like this week's Midnight Madness sketch.  I did both versions, will do a separate post for the CAS version.  A friend asked me to make a Valentine card for her daughter, picked out this Sweet Pea image called Moonlight Fairy, and wanted me to use colors other than the usual pink or red.  The image is colored with Distress Inks; I rubbed the background with my finger to smudge it (finger is still blue). Moon is colored with Twinkling H2Os, and Stickles for her wings.  By the time I finished I almost didn't want to give it up, it's really pretty IRL. :)

This is beautiful, Nancy! You did a wonderful job with the background (blue finger and all), and I know the shimmer you've added with the Twinklin H20's and Stickles is gorgeous!
