Passions for Promarkers and Creative Card Crew

I got such a lovely surprise this morning when I went to look for the new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers - last week I made the Top 5 again with this card........will teach me to remember to check in future. So thank you girls for selecting my card, I will have a smile all day.

On to this weeks theme, there is an 'open' invitation on colours but with the emphasis on "Girly and Glitzy", how good is that. And at Creative Card Crew the theme is "Pink, Black and White" so I felt these two themes lend themselves to one another.

My image is the very chick Stamps Happen 80436 Paris Socialite which I stamped with versafine back and embossed with detail clear and of course coloured with Promarkers. Her fur stole is encrusted with diamonds courtesy of crystal glitter and her bag, hat and corsage have black Swarovsky crystal gems to decorate. I added lace and ribbon, a feather, hat pin and beads to embellish. The border is Martha Steward embossed scallop.

Oh La La! Brenda, this card is amazing. I'd never have thought of these colours for a stamp like this - but they look so fantastic! I NEED your pin and feather combo; it is gorgeous. That little bit of lace is a lovely finish too. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Thank you for joining the Creative Card Crew Challenge.

Ooh la la! This is very elegant Brenda. The MS border is very lace-like and goes so well with the real lace. The feather, ribbon, bead, pin is fabulous as is your use of the colour combination. Brilliant!

Evening Brenda. Congrats on your Top 5, well deserved, this card is stunning.
You have been a busy bee over the weekend, all your cards are lovely. I especially like the lighthouse. It reminds me of the seaside which like you say has been a bit elusive this year.
