Digital Tuesday- People

It's time for another Digital Tuesday challenge and this week the theme is "People". How easy is that?
I just had to get another of the Saturated Canary images to use for this challenge. I just love Krista's images, they are so pretty and such a joy to colour :) I do wish she would slow down with churning out these images though, because at this rate I'm gonna be bankrupt!! lol (would be all for a good cause though, right? haha)

 I used a Craftworks Cards On The Edge "Elegant" card blank from Crafty Emma's Store, and as you can see, I mucked up the purple mat because I done it freehand! I would of binned it and started again but it was my last piece of purple coredinations so I couldn't. So you will just have to imagine that it's straight! rofl
As I said the gorgeous image is a digi from Saturated Canary. This one is called "Tressa, A Princess and I  coloured her with the usual Promarkers, added some stickles and a few tiny seed beads for the trimming and on one of the flowers in her hair. It really stands out irl.

The pretty flowers are also from Crafty Emma's, I used the curly gardenias and mini blossoms. I also used some bits from my (tiny) stash and some pretty Prima flourishes.

I just noticed while I am adding all these links that anyone would think I am affiliated with Craft Emma's store....but I have no connection, other than loving her store and being a very happy customer :)

Here's a close up of the gorgeous image....I don't think my colouring does it the justice it deserves though!

You can see the dimension the seed beads give in this pic, and the little glittery bits I done on the tiny flowers.

I also covered the inside of the card. Now I say "covered" and not decorated, because that's all I really did.
It was getting late when I was finishing up this card last night, and I needed to get it uploaded for the challenge, so I just used the same paper that I used on the front (sorry not sure of the make) and added a scalloped circle (cut with a nestie) to write on, and a tiny little bow with pearls.

I think I will add some more decoration to this but for now it's staying like this until I figure out what to add.

As the card is shaped at the bottom (or side of course if you use it the other way round), you can see the bottom edge of the inside which I think looks quite pretty because you can see the pattered paper that's underneath.

I am entering this one into a few challenges.

CES (Crafty Emmas Store challenge)- Embellish Me More (use at least 4 different types)- I used 2 different types of  flowers, the wire and bead spray thing lol, pearl flourishes, ribbon and lace, and a little bow with pearls inside too.
Pollycraft Challenge- Pearls and Swirls
Truly Scrumptious- Decorate inside of your card (well it is decorated, just not very much lol)
Freshly Brewed Challenge- Something New (I have used a new digi, new flowers and new card blank)
Paper and Such- Tic-Tac-Toe ( I used ribbon, flower and lace)
Digi Designs- Anything Goes

Wow that was a whole lot of challenges! I'm getting good at this challenge thing lol.

Now I have a little bit of news (sad and good news at the same time).
Ellie the owner of Digital Tuesday had took the decision to close Digital Tuesday after this challenge as she feels that she doesn't have the time anymore to give the challenge blog 100%.
I have been on the Digital Tuesday DT from the beginning and have dealt with the sponsor stuff for a long time, so..........I am going to take over the Digital Tuesday challenge blog, which means this will not be the last challenge and there will be many more to come :)
I hope to see lots of my blogging buddies over there joining in with the challenges :) We have some great sponsors over there and there is sooo much inspiration from the fab design team.

Thanks for stopping by today. As always, I love to read all your comments.
