Two down .....

Here's the second of my three orders for 'special' birthday cards!
This time it's for a 60th Birthday early next month. The lady whose birthday has a fabulously flamboyant and dramatic dress sense so I thought this image of a 'Diva' from Mo Manning might fit! 
Don't you love her!

I decided to use a bold colour for this card - the papers are from Summer Driggs (Tiffany Collection) and I really like the aqua blue green colour.

Diva was coloured with promarkers and a liberal helping of Stickles used for her gloves.

 I outlined both image and sentiment with the same Stickles, added a large white satin bow and finally opened the pearl and rhinestone flourish packs that I bought some time ago and have been hoarding!
I also used some tiny pearls for Diva's necklace and earrings and a couple of sparkly gems on the flourishes on the base of the card. Bags of Bling!
The sentiment inside reads -
'have a historic 60th Birthday' (and no doubt she will!!! LOL)


Challenges -
Fairy Fun Fridays - Pearls and Swirls
Fab Friday - Recipe - Ribbon and pearls/rhinestones
Wags N Whiskers - Birthdays
Cupcake Craft - Choose from 150 challenges - and I chose Challenge #47 - Pearls and Swirls
Aud Sentiments - Use at least two words
