Birthday Greetings

On August 9th South Africa celebrated National Woman’s Day and to help celebrate Digistamps4Joy is having a Portrait of a Woman Challenge. We want to see your creations that are geared towards women. Funny, serious, elegant or somewhere in between, it doesn't matter as long as it portrays how beautiful and wonderful a woman is. Please, no witches, goth, vampires, fairies, etc.
Last week it was Team A’s turn to wow you, this week it is Team B’s. I chose the image Diva “D” for my card. Actually mine is not a card, it is a fat page (for information on fat pages click here). I wanted something fun for a birthday card for a friend of mine.

I chose to do a Criss Cross Card for my fat page. The cs is by Stampin Up, the purple polka dot dp is by Bazzil. As usual I used the piece of dp with the name of the flowered dp on my project and I have no idea who it's by. One day I will remember not to do that lol. I used some purple and yellow flowers by Prisma and some beautiful rhinestone swirls by Recollections. The image was coloured with Crayola Crayons and oms, and the gold on her purse, strap and bubbles for the champagne are done with my Gold Glitter Gel Pen. I punched the edges with my SU Scalloped Trim Border punch.

The sentiment is by A Piece of Heart.
Now it's your turn to show us what you've got. Just head on over to our Challenge Blog and add your wonderful creation...we'd love to see them. You still have a few more days to get in on the fun. While you're there, check out our rules and the fabulous creations that my teammates have made to inspire you.

Thanks for looking....Charlene
