Divas By Design Challenge

Welcome friends!  Today starts the beginning of the Divas By Design Challenge Blog.  I am so excited to be working with these talented ladies!  Our challenges will run bi-weekly starting today, May 4.  Our very first challenge is anything goes, so as you can see it's easy peasy and you have two weeks to enter ... yeah!  You can use rubber stamps, digi stamps, or no stamps.  All we ask is that you follow our theme and have fun while you're doing it!

I used a hAnglar & sTanglar image for my card.  I colored this beautiful little sweetie with copics and colored pencils and added Glamour Dust to all her hearts.  I ink distressed and stitched all my papers ... OK, I know it doesn't look very distressed, but that's about as bold as I get with my distressing lol!  I added some lace and ribbon, and attached a little heart button to my bow.  I added some flowers and butterflies to finish my card.

Be sure you stop by the Divas By Design Challenge Blog to check out the beautiful work by the rest of the DT.  Our challenge is being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads so be sure to stop by their shop to see all their adorable images.

I hope you can join in our very first challenge.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
