DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY :: CUTIE PIE PIN-UP :: FRENCH MAID

I managed to get one of the older (new) releases coloured up and this one (my own drawing for Digistamps 4 Joy) is called Cutie Pie Pinup : French Maid.


I have used the colour palette from The Outlawz Colour challenge :


so that I can enter their challenge with this card.

I think the image is perfect for a fun and cheeky Valentine's card.  The image was coloured using alcohol markers:


I also used the following from my stash:

white CS square base card
orange CS mat
pink/white checked DP
white diecut
orange CS flower spray diecut
sewn on flower sequins and beads
3 orange flower gems
layered paper flower with bead centre
orange satin ribbon bow
pink gem bow charm

Check on Sunday, 27 January, for some new releases at Digistamps 4 Joy (I have inside information that there's at least ONE fun Valnetine's image there too!)

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
BEARLY MINE, #70, TIC-TAC-TOW 4 IN A ROW (LOTS of embellies/stamped image/ribbon/the colour pink)
