Walk Like an Egyptian

Good morning everyone!  What a lovely day it was yesterday so much sunshine but quite cold and today - yuck, lots of rain!

Without further ado here is my card I made for today:

I was browsing yesterday and came across this digi image at The Paper Shelter and it just fell into my basket along with some others!!  They have some really lovely images and I don't think it will be long before I visit them again.  I have coloured her with Prisma Pencils and added some Twinkling H2Os for a bit of sheen, its been ages since I used those.  I decided not to use any DPs but used some card from Kanban and some adhesive strips from Kanban which I have had years.  I cut and matted the image with Spellbinders and just added some faceted black gems to the side which I have also had for years and years I think my sister bought me them and they may have come from Paperchase.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Punches and Die cuts
Incy Wincy Designs - Digis Only
Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' - Girly but no Pink
Totally Gorjuss - Bling
Do You Stack Up? - Glitter/Bling
Deep Ocean - Song Inspiration (Bangles/"Walk Like an Egyptian")
Paperminutes - Newest Stamps

That's it for me today as it is so miserable there will be nothing much to do apart from craft!!  Thanks for looking and please leave a comment so that I know you have been and can visit you.  Take care xx

Fabulous card, the image is lovely. Your colouring is so good especially the hair. I find hair really difficult so I tend to avoid it xx
