Bling Bling Bling at Crafty Catz and GDT call

Hi a quick post for me tonight. Hope you are enjoying the weekend so far. Did you hop around with us at Crafty Sentiments I just had a another peep and so loved the creations. That said onto why I am here.
Friday brought us another challenge at CRAFTY CATZ and we have extended our GDT for another weeks so go on enter and add GDT and you never know it might be you.
Well it was the lovely Kims turn to pick our theme and she would like to see lots of BLING on your creations. So lets see them sparkle.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Marianne Designs with this wonderful prize

So now onto my card which I made for a friend's workmate

The brief  i had for this was that she isnt too girlie and must have bling and the number 40. So this is what I came up with.  Image is from Mo's digital pencil too coloured with my promarkers. DP is Sweet thing just love this pad and was a present from a friend. The number has been glittered with an inch of its life. It was a printed out from my computer and layers of card stuck together then glittered. Gems from stash, Gingham ribbon from Meiflower. Banner is a joanna sheen signature  die. Sentiment has been diecut with my XCut oval die and is a SeeD stamp.
Well hope you like and find time to come and play along we cant wait to see what you make.
Thanks for popping by and i will go and check how the voice is going on.

 close up of the image from Sassy Studio Designs - Syrena

I cut a scallop circle and then cut into the middle so i could make into a cone shape I had previously put it through a ribbler and sprayed it with dylussions blue ink. I punched some fern leaves and glued to the shell. Added some lace to some navy card die punched with a scallop M.S punch and placed onto a card that had been embossed with a fiskers wave plate then chalked. The flowers are from Wild orchid crafts. I used some Cheese cloth to give the effect of a fishing net. The image has been coloured with promarkers and this is the first time i have coloured skin this colour hope you like. I wasnt sure how it would turn out when I started but am fairly pleased with the finish result.

So onto my card. This is a card which I was asked to make for a friends BIL as he had just lost his mother. 
I hope this brought him some comfort and I know his wife loved it if you know what I mean. I have heard that she took it into to work to show to her friends which was nice.
I have used a Dig image from Digi Stamp Boutique called Black flowers. You can find it in the shop here. The flourishes on the side are a small stamp i bought from the papermill many years ago. The Butterflies are Memory Box. Sentiment is computer generated. Black gems from Meiflower. Lilac grosgrain ribbon from stash, Lilac card from the papermill and Silver miri card
A simple layout to allow the image and sentiment to take centre stage.
Well I hope you like my card and hope that you will come and play along with us as we cant wait to come and visit you.
