Charisma cardz #44–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  It’s time for Team Gem to share their cards over at charisma cardz challenge this week and Joyce has chosen the theme of “cutesy”.  So you make anything you like as long as it includes something cute – easy peasy!!  I was lucky enough to use an image from one of our sponsors – here is my card:

charisma cardz #44 - cutesy

charisma cardz #44 - cutesy (close up)

The image is by pink cat studio and is called ‘Lily hot cocoa’ and I coloured her with both promarkers and flex markers.  I decided to go for another non traditional colour combo of pink and blue and used papers from the ‘Christmas joy’ paper pad by first edition.  I distressed all the edges and added stickles to her “fluffy” bits for a bit of added sparkle. 

Our sponsors this week are Pink Cat Studio who are offering one lucky winner 5 digis of their choice and Simon Says Stamp who are offering one lucky winner a $20 voucher to spend in their online store.

The rest of the design team have created gorgeous and super cute cards once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
