Midway Post for Challenge #27 Open-Minded Crafting

Well Hello, and its Saturday.
Yes this is my very 1st post for my new Design Team
over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges.
I'm so happy to be on this wonderful team,
and working with such a lovely group of Ladies.
So please come over and join us with all our
Happy Crafty Fun.
I had a hard time trying to take the picture;
for this weeks card,
to show you it in all its
Sparkly Holographic Glory.
(it looks so much better in RL)

The Theme at
New Year's Resolutions

Our Sponsors this week are:-

LiaStampz who are offering
2 Images used by the Design Team

Meljen's Designs who are offering
4 Images from their Store.

The Stamping Boutique who are offering
4 Images from their Store.

Zuri Digital Stamps who are offering
3 Images from their Store.

My Project for this
week is:-
Cassandra Digi Stamp
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with used an A4 sheet of Pearlised Gold Card
(Ross Papers)
which I folded and cut to make a 14cm Square Base Card.
Next I cut a 13cm Square out of 
Rust Card
And then a 12cm Square of
Holographic Firework Orange Metallic Card
(which I was gifted for Xmas)
I then printed off my Image
on White DC Paper
and coloured it in;
using my Promarker Pens.

                                                           Skin -     Vanilla

                                                                           Dusky Pink (Cheeks/Lips)
                                                                           Cyan (Eyes)
                                                           Hair -     Sandstone
                                                                           Burnt Sienna
                                                           Dress -   Coral
                                                                           Cool Grey 1 (Shading)
                                                                           Cool Grey 3 (Shading)
                                                                           Cool Grey 4 (Shading)

And using a Gold Metallic Gel Pen
for her Tiara, Necklace, Bracelet and
the Laces on the back of the Dress.
I then Die-Cut the Image out using the
7.5cm Circle Die

I placed the 2 lengths of Holographic Gold Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
And where they meet, 
I Handmade a Bow from the same Ribbon,
and placed it on.

For my Sentiment, I looked Online
and I found this perfect Quote.
I printed it off on White DC Paper,
and Die-Cut it out using the
4.2cm Circle Die

For some extra Sparkle I edged both Circles;
with Gold Glitter Circle Peel-Offs
(The Range)
And finally I added
2x 2mm and 1x 3mm AB Yellow Rounded Rhinestone Gems
to her Tiara.
