TERRIFICALLY THRILLING THURSDAY AT SHELLY'S IMAGES



Well, here we are again ... it's THURSDAY and it's TERRIFICALLY THRILLING ...

Why ... cos we have a new image to showcase and a great new challenge!

 This Week's Featured Image is Picnic, make sure to stop by Shelly's Images Store, to get your copy.


  Our challenge for you this week is 
Stars, Stripes & SPARKLE

And here is my card to showcase the new image and to inspire you for the challenge:


Here is a closer look at that fabulous image :

I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen for some highlights.  Glossy accents form the shine on the watermelon, grapes and juice.

Striped DP and stick on star gems for the challenge requirements and a lovely green organza ribbon complete the card.

Are you now inspired?  Click here to find the linky for the challenge at Shelly's Images blog, and while you are there, please check out the wonderful projects made by the rest of the DT!  You will be amazed!!!

I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
