A Child's Sweet Dreams

Good Day All,

First I would like to apologize for this post being a little late. I have been under the weather the last couple of days and nothing seems to be helping.
Today Crafty Sentiments starts a new Challenge - Photo Inspiration.

Today I want to share a very special something I made for my niece, her birthday is coming up soon and she loves bright colors. Of course, after I made this one, I am going to make a few more for a craft fair I am doing and for my other niece's. The image I used comes from Crafty Sentiments named "Sweet Dreams". You can purchase "Sweet Dreams" image from the Crafty Sentiments Designs Shop, plus look at some of latest images and our latest CD's. :D

Here it is:

Here is the project illuminated. 

Used a glass square candle holder approx. 3 1/2 inches tall. I printed the image and my sentiment on vellum from my printer. Used my copics to color her in (you can use whatever colors you want or even colored pencils). Used Powder Puff Lemonade to ink around the image and sentiments. Used Glossy Accents to adhere the vellum to the glass. Used Prima flowers added gems to the flowers and around the sentiment, and adhered with glue dots. 
Paper - Vellum
Stamp - Crafty Sentiments Stamp - Sweet Dreams
Ink - Powder Puff - Lemonade; Copics - Used on ImageRV13 (eyes&lips); E29, E57 (hair); E 53, E11 (skin); C-5 (lace-bottom of gown); V06, V09 (for Gown) & Used on Flowers - YG63, Y15, Y 38, YR68, V06
Accessories - Spellbinders: Scallop to cut out the image (used second largest size); Spellbinders - Labels 8 to the sentiment (the third size down). Glossy Accents; Prima - colored flowers; From stash: all gems used on my project.

***Very important - when you are done coloring your image and inking around both sentiment and image let dry for 3 minutes turn over so the inked & colored images are going to be adhered to the glass. This gives the soft look to the images when candle is lit. DO NOT use a taller candle as paper may catch on fire. Use a small tea lite or LED candle for light.

Found the sentiment on   from this site it has many different variations of this prayer.
