#93 Please Drink Responsibly

This is the last challenge before Christmas over at One Stitch at a Time Challenge Blog and the theme of this challenge is everyone's favourite 'Anything Goes'. I chose Stitchy's digi called Please Drink Responsibly. I used a large scalloped card blank from Craft UK but I have no idea where I got the striped purple card from. :(

Our sponsor this week is Stitchybear herself, brilliant!

I coloured the digi with Promarkers, edged it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and cut it with a Spellbinders grand oval nestie. I used a lilac flowered paper in a scalloped oval the next size up and then backed that with a purple grand nestie oval in the next size up again. The purple card is from Papermill. The matted layers made a beautiful frame for this fun image. I used a Sakura stardust pen for the glasses and the button on her trousers. I added some purple pearls, from WOC, for earrings and necklace - then I put it through the Grand Calibur again, which flattened the pearls and I think they look pretty cool! I added a piece of lilac lace which I bought at the local market and a band of the striped card, to go across the lace. Purple flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are cut with Crealies dies.
