Another card in shades of teal

I think I've fallen in love with a new colour for me, lol, can you tell?
This time the female and the wings came from Outlaw by Design and I've used my Broken Dreams paper set again.
The theme this week over at Haunted Design House's Macabre Monday challenge is Netherworld Nymphs, so we want to see all your fabulously wicked and dark diva creatures. As Barb put it:
feminine nature spirits from the darkside. Goddess, sprite, mermaid, pixie, fairie or fay.

These are the other challenges that I'm entering:
Truly Scrumptious - Ch.38, sketch + golden oldie. I've had the Outlaw by Design CD for years now, and I don't use it enough, so that's my golden oldie stash.
Tuesday Throwdown - Monochrome. This is my second entry, feel free to ignore if I should only enter once :)
Simon Says Stamp - sing it baby. I was really having trouble thinking what type of sentiment would suit this image, and then the song came into my head and I knew :)
Flutterby Wednesday - your favourite colour with a fairy butterfly or angel. Now my favourite colour is purple, which is probably blindingly obvious if you look at my posts, but I have allowed this shade of deep teal to sneak up alongside purple in my "favourite colours" list. I can't say how long it will be at the top of the list, lol, purple has a tendency to sneak back into my affections whenever I use something else for a while, but for now, I'm loving teal :)
So Artful - proud as a peacock. Can you tell she's wearing peacock feathers. When I work on cards, I'm nearly always zoomed in, so I think I sometimes add details that aren't immediately obvious when you look at the card as a whole. But they are there :P
And I'm too late for both the Monochrome and the fluutterby challenge, I'm going to have to change something about the way I enter/choose challenges I think.
