My first DT card for Creative Card Crew

Did I mention that I had been asked to join the Design Team at Creative Card Crew ;-)
Well here's my first DT card, it was Sharon's turn to set the challenge this week and she chose a colour combo of Black, Pink & White.

I really enjoyed making this card using a Whimsy image sent to me, which I coloured with copic markers. I didn't have the right coloured bloom so chose a white one and coloured it with a copic to match the ones used in the image.
The card went great until I had finished it and tried to stand it up to photograph it - guess what? I had stuck the image and details on the wrong way..... what a muppet? Fortunately I managed to lift it and turn it round, no harm done..

The challenge this week is sponsored by Whimsy stamps
and the fabulous prize that Denise has given us is a Pyjama Emma stamp and the Wedding Cake and Kisses digital download.

Make sure you visit Creative Card Crew and check out the very talented design team members work and those great prizes.

Your card is beautiful Sam. The way you coloured and glittered the image is stunning. That extra touch of silver and bling is the perfect complement.
