DT Team Call Out

Well I thought I would try out for a few other DT's (well you never know!).  I've got quite a lot of time on my hands at the moment...what with hubbie working away quite a lot of the time plus my sweet daughter is finally leaving the nest.  She's moving to London next week to be an actor in the London Dungeon attraction.  I'm so proud of her, she's managed to fulfil her dreams of being an actress ever since leaving university almost 4 years ago.  I'm going to miss her like crazy, she's my best friend, my confidant and my rock - but I know she has to follow her own path and her own dreams.  I wish her every happiness and look forward to the day I see her name in lights on the West End stage.

Sooooo, back to the card I've made for the design team call out for Sugar Nellie - I used Tiffany and my copics. She was such a beautiful image to colour in. I wanted to make my 8 x 8 card pretty and elegant so I used aqua and lilac to match in with the papers, and used delicate copic colours for Tiffany.  Even if I'm not successful with my entry for  the DT I still enjoyed every moment of making my card. Finally I added my own handmade flowers and hat pins to co-ordinate with the colour scheme.

Here's what I used:

Digi Image: Sugar Nellie 'Tiffany' available from Funkykits
Paper/Cardstock: First Edition 'First Bloom', coloured cardstock from AC, Create & Craft, Papermania
Dies: Sizzix Banner #2, Sizzix Squares, Martha Stewart 'Branch', Spellbinder 'Persian Accent', Britannia 'Medium Rose',  Marianne Designs 'Swirl Rose -  LR0162'
Copics: Skin: E0000, E000, E01, E13, R20 / Hair: YR0000, YR000, E81 E13, E15 / Eyes, Tights, Flower: BG000, BG01, BG05 / Dress: V000, V01, V04, V05, V09 / Hearts: Y0000, Y000, YR00 / Around Image: B0000, B000
Stamped Flowers: Adirondack 'Juniper', 'Tumbled Glass' Distressing Ink, Hunkydory 'Floral Chic'
Other: Ribbon, Wired Pearls, Pearls, Glitter, Diamante Hat Pins, Beads and Spacers, Sentiment Computer Generated, Glitter

Thanks for dropping by, hope you like my entry.
