Pink & Black at Creative Inspirations DT card

(YOUR EYES ARE NOT PLAYING TRICKS ON YOU:
My blog design is infact my card below...........for details on this I URGE YOU to read below)

************************************

For the next two weeks at Creative Inspirations we want to see your creations be:

PINK & BLACK

This is such a great color combo!
And a Great Sponsor too! 
 We are being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps!
Who doesn't want a Bugaboo stamp......

ME, since I don't have any, sooooooooooooooooo instead......


.....................I am using a digital image from Prairie Fairy Designs called Japanese Lanterns.
This is one of her newer images from her Japanese Collection. You can find a matching Geisha, fan & green-teapot at her store as well! Go check it out!
I colored my lanterns with watercolor pencils and added spica glitter to the black tops of the lanterns as well as the flowers. I tried to get a good shot of it in the second picture.
The lace & black ribbon in the back & the watermelon organza sneaking out from the very top & bottom are from Really Reasonable Ribbons.
The die cut scallop circle is from Mrs. Susie Sugar's Die Cut Dreams Store.




These pics are of some flower arrangement accents found at Dollarama.
The top pic mimicks the lanterns & is adhered by crystal effects. 
The bottom pieces stemming from the Wild Orchid flower are held on by glue dots!  


Challenges for my card:

PaperPlay- All Shapes & Sizes
The Secret Crafter- anything goes
Everybody's Art- other cardform
Stamp Something- digi day
Cowgirl's Sunday Stampin'- hip NOT to be square

MORE ABOUT MY BLOG LAYOUT!

Do u want one that resembles one of your best cards?
Would you pay money to have one specially made?
Wanna know where this can happen.....................

Well it may just start happening at a blog near you!!

The Prairie Fairy has been dabbling in web/blog design & my blog look has been created by her artistic hand. She has also created the new look over at Totally Tilda.
If demand deems worthy, she will start offering sales of 'custom design blogs'  in her store.....
So leave a comment here is you'd be interested in having your blog customized to YOUR OWN STYLE, or head on over to her blog and tell her yourself. (She also has 5 chances to win some candy)....
