Is this a pretty fairy or what? She is one of the new images that are currently available from Make It Crafty and is called Alyssa Elven Princess.
Being part of such a fabulous DT has really made me look at how I colour images and I have used this image to practise folds in the skirt and light sources. I am really pleased with how she turned out so think the practising is starting to pay off (just hope the Boss Lady agrees lol) The wings I coloured with copics using a feather effect and then sprayed with silver Crafters Companion glitter spray. Love the effect but I dont think you really get the full impact with the pictures. 
Circles are spellbinders dies the plain circle I put into the swiss dots cuttlebug folder to give added texture the diamonds on the layers are also cuttlebug folders. 

Heres a view of the inside of the easel card, the sentiment is yep you guessed it  a cuttlebug embossing folder.
 I layered the wings to give the image more depth and placed on the card with silicone so I could give her more shape, I did try to take a side view photo to show you but it is not to clear I was getting a lot of bounce back as the card is white pearlescent.

Oh and can you see that fabulous signature, well this was a pressy to me from the lovely Vickie of Nana Vic fame.

I am entering the card into four challenges

    Guess what I got yesterday, a christmas card from you with the chior boy on it!!!! It was in one of their seethrough plastic bags, will sorry this item was damaged on it. It wasn't damaged but I bet they saw the postmark was mid December and stuck it in the plastic wallet!!!!!
