New Challenge #158 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hello Again,
Well its been a fairly good week so far for me,
I started my Xmas shopping so feeling good
and organised (so far).

I will be announcing the Winners of the
Glitter 'N' Sparkle Birthday Blog Hop
later on today so please come back and see
who the Lucky Winners are.

As we all know October is 
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
and this weeks card is dedicated to this Cause.
I would like to pay my respects to everyone 
who has been affected by Breast Cancer.
Not only to the people who are living with it 
but also their families.
As well as to those who have lost loved ones.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.

The Theme at
Use Some Pink

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Spellbinding Stamps who are offering
3 Images from their store.

The Stamping Boutique who are offering
2 Images from their store
(or 3 Images if a TSB or Glitterbabes Image is used).

Lemon Shortbread who are offering
3 Images from their store.

Morgan's ArtWorld who are offering
2 Images from their store.

My Project this
week is:-
Orchis - Last Enchanter Digi Stamp
(One of our sponsors)
To begin with I used an Pre-cut 20cm White Square Card
to which I added a layer of Pink/Amethyst Abstract Clouds
Then I added a 15.5 Square of Pearlised Pale Pink Card
(The Range)
to the Center of the Card.

Next I printed off the Image
  on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens
Pale Pink
Baby Pink
Cocktail Pink
Pastel Blue
Denim Blue
Meadow Green
Leaf Green
Cool Grey 1
Cool Grey 3

I added Iridescent Pastel Pink Glitter
to the bottom half of the Dress.
I also added Iridescent Mauve Pink Glitter 
to the Dress Bodice and to her Glove.
And finally I added Holographic Gold Glitter
to her Crown.
(all from Glitter Magic)
I added small bits of Bright Pink Feathers
(The Range)
on the Image for the Feather Effect.
For the Bouquet I used
1 Powder Blue Feather
1 Baby Pink Feather
1 Bright Pink Feather
(The Range),
and 3 Pink/White Flowers
which I bound together using
1cm Pale Pink Satin Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery).
Next I made the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon
from the same Pink Satin Ribbon,
And finished it off with a 5mm Dotted Crystal Rhinestone
