Becoming More than You Realize

I've had the Tim Holtz Winged Things stamp set for a while and I finally got it out to make a card.  I also used the newly released Ledger Script.
First I stamped the Ledger Script on a panel of Rustic Cream card using Ranger Distress Hickory Smoke Ink.  I stamped one of the Winged Things on Rustic Cream and cut her out.  I sponged the edges of the image and of the panel.  I layered the Winged Thing over the panel with foam dots and adhered a cut up Small Talk Sticker to the panel.  I added pink cheeks with a Copic.
Inside I stamped 

I'm linking my card to  the following challenges

I used a Copic and sponged my edges

I was a touch confused when I found this in the linky projects - my brain's a bit slow, stuffed up with cold at the moment! - but oh what a charming piece it is, Julia. The little winged girl is adorable, and I love the gentle neutrals - just lovely.
