Midnight Madness Challenge #88

It's Tuesday and that means a brand new Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!   I'd like to show you my creation for this week's challenge and then move on to the details:
I saw this little angel in the Digi Doodle Shop and could not resist!  I framed her with "Crowned Oval Hearts" digital frame designed by Raindrop Echo for Whimsy Stamps.  I colored her with my Copic markers and sponged the edges.  The DP is from Basic Grey's "Bittersweet" collection.  I used a Martha Stewart border and corner punch for my lace and added pearl dew drops.  The flowers are Prima roses lightly colored with a Copic marker.  My hearts are also from a Martha Stewart punch and painted with Crystal Effects.  
Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)
