Charisma Cardz Colour Challenge GD card :-)

I was thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer on the Charisma Cardz Challenge for the whole month of January ! :-) I am really looking forward to working with their fabulous DT again :-)I was a GD in July/August too :-)

The theme this week is a gorgeous colour challenge :


They are being sponsored this week by Whiff Of Joy
and are offering a fab stamp ,,, perfect for Valentine !! :-)

For my card I followed the lovely sketch on the Allsorts Challenge they also asked for us to use some new or old stash. I used my new Bride and Groom House Mouse stamp which is actually called PLAYING DRESS UP ,,, cute eh ! :-) I could also say I used my old stickles ,, I used the last squeeze from the diamond one ,,, need to replace that now ,, and the ice one ,, completely out of stock now :-(

I coloured the image with copics and added lace stickles to her veil :-) I added some stickles to the flowers and copic clear glitter pen to his waistband and bow tie ,,, don't they look a handsome couple :-) I embossed the edges with cream pigment ink and sparkle EP ,, then added stickles too ,,, can't have too much sparkle eh ! :-)
The papers are Basic Grey ,, have had that pad for ages and the front fell off so don't know what they are called ,, the flowers are prima sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and added the very last drops of diamond stickles :-) The horseshoe charm is from my charm jar and the sentiment was printed on the comp.

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-)

By the Cute and Girly ,,,,, New something ,,,

Stampin' for the Weekend,,,, New Beginnings

Secret Crafter Saturday ,,,, New Beginnings
