Inspiration Destination Challenge 5 - Deborah, Hat Lady

Come and join us at Inspiration Destination and have some fun with Anything Goes. This week our sponsor is Rick St Dennis and I chose the image 'Deborah, Hat Lady'.

My large card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I used my new Sue Wilson die 'Bevelled Glass Striplet' and cut three in black card from Papermill. I have had the sparkly paper for ever! I bought it from Create and Craft when they first started and have used very little of it. I stuck the the three black striplets on separate colours and then matted them on to a creamy gold pearlescent card before matting that on to emerald pearlescent card from Hobbycraft.I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut with a Spellbinders grand nestie classic oval which I then mounted on to foam squares to let her stand proud. The only embellishments were the gems added to the bottom of the card in all three colours, red, green and silver.

I love this image and (dare I say this myself?) I love this card.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
As You Like It Challenge - Cute or Elegant and why - I'm not keen on making cute so stick to elegant images whenever I can.
Delightful Challenges - Three's not a crowd -  3 black striplets and three of each type of gem/pearl
