A card and fab news :-)

I made this card using the lovely sketch on Our Creative Corner Challenge
I used the colours Navy, Lime and Turquoise for the Colour Create Challenge It also qualifies for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge
whose theme is 'girls' . Well this is girly :-)
This image is one of my fave Penny Black stamps, I have had my money's worth from this one :-) I re stamped the bikini top in pigment ink, embossed then added liquid 3d gloss which I sprinkled with glitter too. The sentiment is a new SU one and the circle things, which I think look like slices of lime, well, that's the intention anyway, were cut out on my cricut.The paper is from Stamping Up and the ribbon from my messy drawer :-)

Ok onto my news, I have been chosen by Ellie at Live Laugh Love blog to be on her DT :-)So this card is for you Ellie :-) I am absolutely thrilled to have been asked and can't wait to start making a few cards using her fabulous downloads. I have put a link on my sidebar to her store so please take a look. This is a new venture for her, she only started in February so it would be nice if you could pop over there and take a look :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
