Prize- 3 single digis

My card today is using an absolutely beautiful image from The East Wind called Aurora Floral Kiss. I must admit I've never coloured an image like this before and I had five attempts colouring it before I felt I'd done it justice. I even had hubby giving me advice on the hair at one point :D.

I put some Wink of Stella on the wooden heart, well you know me and glitter!
