Hope Your Day Is As Fabulous As You Are

Todays card is my first as GUEST DESIGNER for Karber Digital Images.  Berenice, one of the owners asked if Id like to be their guest for the month of July and of course I jumped at it.
This elegant lady is Denny, she comes in many guises -this is Cocktail Denny.  She is a digi (from Karber Digital Images of course!) and I coloured her with Copic markers.  Stamp Something's current challenge is its July Digi Day, so Dennys in.and Craft Your Passion has Anything Goes; so in there too!
The paper on the card base is from Kaisercrafts After Five collection, the one with the Deco style arches is from Kaisercrafts Shaken Not Stirred collection the black stripy paper is in fact corrugated.  The red panel is the last L of my fabulous textured pearl paper Ive made three or four cards out of one A4 piece, not bad!!  Ill have to get into Starfish Lane and get some more, I LOVE IT!  The black card for matting is from my stash.
I used this sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces...the part of the sketch representing the flowers made me think of feathers.so thats what I used! 
I've never put feathers on a card before; I think it suits the style of the card.  Delicious Doodles has Flourishes and Bling as its challenge theme this time, along with my feathers I have flourishes cut out with a Marianne D Creatables die and pins I made up myself using quilting pins, beads and some Swarowski crystals with a crimp on the end to hold everything on (its the first time Ive used pins too, I ordered some proper stick pins from the US but they seem to have got lost Ill have to chase them up)  
Totally Papercrafts has this Bingo grid for its challenge this week, I've gone with the  Ribbon/Glitter Glimmer/ Gems line.  Divas by Design has Die Cuts and Punches as its challenge theme, my die cut and the lace cut with a Nellie Snellen border die get me in there!  Crafty Cardmakers has Spots and Stripes as its theme my spotty ribbon gets me in there (as well as the stripy background paper, of course!) As Allsorts Challenges has Anything Goes, I'm definitely in there!!  I made the sentiment on the computer.

The inside of the card was finished very simply with papers from the front, with some bling added to the lace.  
That's it from Denny and Dee!  I'll be back  in a few days with a card for All That Scraps and a few days after that with one for Here Come The Boys....busy busy busy, lol.
Thanks for looking at my card, until next time, Happy Crafting, Dee
