Colouring medium is promarkers
Diamond stickles on wings.
Flower is from WOC
Punched leaf McGill punch

This is gorgeous Marion, this is such an adorable image and I love your colours. Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog re the thank you cards. The image is, I believe, from Crafty Individuals, but it was a christmas gift so I can't be totally sure.
