Good Morning!
This card has been made a couple of weeks!
It was for our daughter who sometimes {but, not often} takes a peek at my blog..
Now I know if I'd have shown this one? She might have guessed it was for her, because it's 'To Someone Special' so that's what it says on the sentiment.

I know this is a Hangler Strangler stamp because someone sent it to me many moons ago and I've only just managed to part with her. 
Coloured with Copics..LOts of glitter on her little wings. I've used a Gelly Roll pen  on her hat/flowers....Papers/embellishments from stash.
The flowers and sentiment have been coloured with distress ink Spun Sugar.
