Thomas's Angel

I have made this layout for the following challenges

Dezinaworld Spot Prize Challenge - Wings
Sketch Saturday #117 - Sketch - I've added a title so I hope it still counts
One Stop Craft Challenge #94 - Not a card
Wild Orchid Challenge #4 - Make it sparkle

This is a picture of my daughter in her Thomas the Tank Engine pyjamas.  It was taken a few years ago but when I showed the photo to her she said it was her favourite set of pyjamas.  She was wearing her fluffy, sparkly tiara so I used a pair of wings from a Dezinaworld coIlage sheet and put them behind my photo (which I had just made into a transparent GIF on photoshop, it takes longer than just cutting out the photo but I enjoy messing with computer software).  I used paper from a Papermania 12 x 12 card pad for the plain card and the pink patterned paper behind the photo was from Tinker and Co.  The flowers were made from an EK Success, Woodware and MS punches the small blue centre is a snowflake but I think it will pass as a small flower.  Another CAS LO for me.  I'm off to bed now as I can't keep my eyes open.
