D2D Designers challenge

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Designed2Delight. It's girls and glitter this week. I'm on a bit of a Christmas card kick at the moment, so I decided to go with it.

This Kaela as an Angel is an older image and one of my favorites. She's glittered up on her wings, star and halo with a generous amount of stickles.

I've used Tracy's sketch from Sketchy Thursday #147 at Eat Sleep Stamp. Another great sketch from Tracy!
