For Makaela



 This is the first commissioned card I've made in quite a while.  Although, the Christmas requests are coming in now.  This is for a friend who's daughter is doing a year of college in Australia.  She wanted a special card to send.  I looked through my images and thought this would be ideal.  I had so much fun making this card.  She needed it in one night so I had to work pretty quickly.




The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called "Winter Fairy Haila."  The digital papers are from Echo Park.  I, of course, colored her with Copics.
I added lots and lots of glitter on this one.

Copics:  B01, BG0000, BG000, BG10, C0, C1, E00, E02, R20, Y00, YR20, YR21, YR24
