Swirls and pearls again!

Well we seem to be back to that old song 'Here comes the rain again!'  I would much rather have the sun back please. 
And onto todays card.

The silver and black backing papers is from Anita's classic Christmas black papers, the blue card matted top layer has been embossed with a swirl embossing folder.  The doily in the back has been slightly inked with a blue ink.

The image is a Kenny K digi stamp called 'devilish Donna' from the Gothik Angelz collection.  I have coloured her with pro markers, and glittered the wings.  She is standing on the medium Nellie snellen multi frame rectangles, which I have inked with blue and black, then liquid pearled around the edge.

I have used 3 black Marabou feathers in the top corner and put a flower from wid orchid crafts, and used 2 die cut swirls cut out with a Marianne creatables die, I have then added pearls to the end of each swirl.  In the bottom corner I have used a faux metalic corner, again from Wild orchid crafts.

The sentiment was created on my computer then cut out with a 1" circular punch.  It has then been inked and mounted onto another Nellie Snellen die cut from the circles multiframe set.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

I hope you like it, and thanks for looking.
