For my card this week I have used the lovely image

Ellen Shopping

I printed her onto digital card, coloured her with 
Promarker Pens and cut her out. 

I used a white, scalloped edge card blank which I 
inked with Chipped Saphire Distress Marker.
I wanted a strong purple border so I went 
over the inking a few times.
I made layers with some patterned papers in purple
tones which I finished with some torn edges, some smooth;
some corners shaped,some rough.
I made a bow of lilac glittered twine and 
wrapped it through a diamonte buckle.
I added a couple of snowflakes to finish.

Challenges I would like to enter with this card are:

I used six layers, one of card, four of paper and one topper. If I count the snowflake that makes it seven layers.


I would just like to draw your attention to the fact that it is

 Child Cancer Awareness Month:

essential read so please check it out.
