Divas by Design DT card

Hello blogworld

Well can you believe another two weeks have flown by and here we are with a new challenge over at Divas by Design this time it's a sketch and it's been created by the boss lady, Rebekah, herself!

Our sponsor for this week is:

Why not pop over there, have a look see at the wonderful things my teamies have created and give the challenge a go - would be lovely to see your entry. 

Here is what I came up with for my card:
Front shot:
 Detail shot of image:

I think this image could well become my favourite ever (of the images released so far!) even topping Nevaeh - shock horror!  

OK now this is going to sound very odd, but do you ever wonder about the images as you colour them? Not exactly making stories up about them, but more why.  Firstly, why did I feel that her hair had to be pink?  That was explained when I went back to Krista's etsy shop and saw she had given her pink hair - that explains that, subconsciously I'd decided pink hair as I'd seen it already.  

But then the name of the stamp - Bunny the Magician?  The girl's name or because there is a bunny rabbit in the hat? So I was making a sort of back story for her, Bunny is her name and she has been putting on her favourite dressing up outfit and her favourite toy in the hat then doing her best magic trick to the applause of her family.  Hubby then came in and totally ruined my little fantasy world - how?  He said - that dress would give an interesting view from behind, wouldn't it!  Pah to hubby's they ruin my little happy, pink, fluffy world that I inhabit when I make cards.  I might even start a campaign to ban them from dining rooms when creating is happening!

Oh dear I've really waffled there haven't I, so moving quickly on!

I used:
Saturated Canary image: Bunny the Magician and coloured with my Promarkers, Flexmarkers with highlighting using a white gel pen.  Also Glamour Dusted her underskirt, bunny tail and heart on the ear.
Go-Kreate die to cut out the image and then chalked while in the die for the background.
Papers are : Craftwork Cards-Shabby Vintage and Prima-Sparkling Spring.
Martha Stewart punch.
Flowers are various Prima.
Pearls, corner edges, button from my stuff.
Craftwork cards for card blank and sentiment.

Looking forward to seeing all the entries,

bye for now!

This is such a beautiful card huni, I love the sketch this week and am hoping I can make time to join in. I don't really know where to start talking about this card though as I love everything about it. The image is just adorable and beautifully coloured. I love those bright flowers, the papers are lovely and the corner accents and pearls finish it off so perfectly. Really fantastic design.
