Bold and Beautiful

Good morning to you all, hope you are going to have a nice weekend.  We are just having a quiet one, getting ready for my son, DIL and two gorgeous grandsons arriving tomorrow - I am so excited!!

I have a card today that I made for my Guest DT spot over at Sweet Stampin' Challenge where the theme this week is Bold and Beautiful.

I used the beautiful Midnight Warrior from Crafts and Me.  She has been coloured with Copics and a little bit of Liquid Pearls around her mask.  The papers are DCWV Garden Party which I have had for many years and this may have been the first time I have used them!! I have used the following Cheery Lynn dies: Exotic Butterflys 2, Tiny Expandable Borders, Sunflower and Build a Flower Embellishment 2.

Here is a side view:

There are three fabulous sponsors this week and they also have some special 1000 follower candy for two lucky winners go over to the challenge to see the details and the beautiful DT creations.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Card Crafter's Circle - Winged Things
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
The House That Stamps Built - DCC14 Things With Wings
Inky Impressions - Things with Wings
Through the Purple Haze - Butterflies and Flowers

Thank you so much for looking today! Take care xx

First of all so sorry for being MIA for quite some time Susan, wasn't something I intended to, but it has been such a hectic time at work... Bad excuse, I know... Anyway, I'm glad to be able to visit again and I really love your latest creations, you have not only been active, but very creative, too! Lovely creations as usual! Take care, Ira x
