Pretty in pink

The As You See It Challenge blog is dedicating this week's challenge to a brave little girl named Lola--a little 9-year-old battling cancer.  The challenge is to use some of Lola's favorite things to help cheer her up.  How could I not play along!!??  I have a nine-year-old and I can't imagine her having to deal with that.  My prayers are with you, Lola!  Here's my card, sending happy thought:
I tried the no-line coloring technique on this one.  It's the first time I've done it and I can't really decide if I like it or not.  I mean, it's pretty, but I might prefer seeing the lines.  I used a glitter pen on the wings to give them sparkle and a more "fairy" like look.   I spritzed the background paper with some gold glitter spray, you can see a bit of it in the next picture.  You can also see the glitter pen on the wings.

What a cute card and love the papers you used. So delighted that you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new challenge is starting today and I hope you visit us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Jeremiah 29:12-13 and the Lord tells us, "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Have an awesome day!
