Well this is some sad news,
Unfortunately the Open-Minded Crafting Fun Blog
is closing down its Challenges.
So this post is early, and is also my Penultimate post for the site.
I have had the pleasure of working with some
truly remarkable Ladies,
and seeing their amazing creations.
Hopefully I will be able to work with them all again
The Theme at

My Project for this
Hollaback Girl Digi Stamp
from Kenny K
(one of our sponsors)
Then I cut some Pearlised Light Blue Card
to cover the front of the Card.
for the Base I used Dark Green Card
and I cut and extra 1.5 Wide strip so that
the front could stand up.
Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper.
I coloured the Images
using my Promarker Pens.
Satin - Skin
Putty - Skin
Blush - Cheeks
Dusky Rose - Lips
Sunkissed Pink - Mouth
Coral - Tongue
Red - Nails/T-Shirt
Amber - Shoes
Sunflower - Shoes
Tan - Hair
Cinnamon - Hair
Cocoa - Hair
Henna - Hair
Walnut - Hair
Pastel Green - Wall
Grass - Bracelet/Belt
Holly - Trousers
Aubergine - T-Shirt
Cool Aqua - Wall Bricks
Sky Blue - Wall Top
Azure - Eyes/Bracelet/Wall Top
I then backed the Image on to a piece of stiff White Card
and cut the Image out with the Scalloped Oval Die
I then went around the edge of the Die-Cut Image
with my Azure Promarker Pen.
and to give it a touch of Sparkle
I went over the top of the pen with
Multi-Mix Blues Glitter
to fit inside oval of the Die Cut.
And then fussy cut out the Frame
to fit on top of the Image,
over the Die cut Cream Card.
I went around all ot the edges
with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Using some Scraps of Pearlised Red, Orange and Yellow Card
and some Pearlised Purple and White Paper
(all from my scrap box)
I used 2 Flower Punches
(Petal Pair, Set 3 - Tonic)
and added them to the Blue background.
Using the Holly Promarker Pen
I scribbled on some Grass, Flower Stems and Leaves,
under the flowers.
and drew on 2 Bumblebee's using
Sunflower and Black Promarker Pens.
To finish off I added to the center of the Flowers
6mm Dotted Yellow Rhinestones
