A card!

Yep, an actual card ; ) I had every intention of coloring three images today. I had them all printed out and started on the skin of all three. This image was the last one to get her skin inked and then I started on the pleats. Well, that was all she wrote! The other two are sitting here with cute skin and no clothes.
The image is from Crafts and Me called Lady of Opal by the artist Sara Burrier. I didn't write down any of my colors. All I can tell you is her dress is V91 thru V99. But then I add the blue to her "transparent" wings and it looked disjointed. So I added in some blues to her dress, I think it was B00 or B02. 
Here's a close up:
The word "Dream" I created using an alphabet stencil. The swirly stamp is from Unity. 
Now I am off to enter in my first challenge since last October!!
Thanks for looking : )
