Digi Galore Challenges: Anything Goes

Can you believe it's already December?  Where has the time gone?  YIKES!  Well, it's the first of the month and time for a new challenge over at Digi Galore Challenges.  This time, we are sponsored by the awesome Kenny K. Downloads, and the theme is:  Anything Goes.

I had the pleasure of working with Movie Star.  I decided to have some fun with her hair and use two colors.  My teenager went through a phase where she was dying some of her hair in bright, funky colors like pink and turquoise, and that is what inspired me when inking up this gal's hair.

It might be a little hard to see in the pics, but I also added some sparkle to her eyes and lips.  I love adding little touches like that.  Sometimes, little touches add a lot to a card!  I also took some Flower Soft and added it to her collar and cuffs for a fun effect.  The patterned paper is from the Amy Tan Sketchbook 6 x 6 paper pad.  The papers are just so bright and fun!  And, what's a movie star without some bling and glittery stars, right?

The turquoise cardstock is Bazzill Bling.  I used a brick wall embossing folder, and I must say that I love the look!  I've actually had the embossing folder for a while but just haven't used it.  I know a lot of us crafters have supplies that just sit in our craft rooms unused.  I've decided that I'm going to make a real effort to actually MAKE USE of my stuff!  So, on this card, I have used several things that have been sitting in my stash for far too long! What's the point in buying stuff if I don't use them, right?  Overall, I love how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to check out the latest challenge over at Digi Galore Challenges!
