Bee crafty challenge #55–DT card

Hello dear friends.  I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend.  We’ve been spoilt today by my mum who made us the most scrummy cooked dinner yum yum!!  I’m feeling lovely and contented right about now!

Don’t faint, I know it’s a very rare Sunday post from me but that’s because it’s time for a brand new challenge over at Bee Crafty downloads.  For our monthly challenge for October we have the very easy and girly theme of “bling” so dig out all your glitter, gems and sparkle and join us for our challenge.  Here is my card:

Bee crafty #55 - bling

Bee crafty #55 - bling (close up)

I have used a bee crafty digi image called “contemporary girl” which is available in the store here.  I coloured the image with my promarkers and used a sakura gelly roll pen in lime star for the ruffles on her dress, buttons and bag.  I also coloured the centres of my flowers with the same gelly roll pen.  The papers are wild rose studio from the ‘Milton & co’ paper pack and the bling flourish is by prima. 

The prize as always is your choice of any two downloads (with the exception of the sets & PDFs) and you can enter the challenge as many times as you like.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate your lovely comments. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Cupcake inspirations challenge – photo inspiration (inspired by colours)

OSAAT challenge – use a digi

Stamptacular challenge – photo inspiration (inspired by colours)

Ooh la la creations challenge – punches and/or dies

Freshly brewed challenge – fall/halloween themed projects  (my colours)

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge and I cannot wait to see what you create.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll be back in the morning with my DT cards for the stamp with fun challenge and the cupcake craft challenge.  Thanks for stopping by today.
