What a Hottie!!!!!

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today I am showing you a card I was asked to create for a colleague, for her friends birthday.  After discussing the recipient I finally decided to go with another one of the fabulous Kenny K images, which fits the 50 sentiment I have so perfectly and will suit her not Girly and humour type. I also checked out Kenny K's challenge theme this week and the colours fitted it perfectly.

So here is what I created, just got to create the box to go with it now :)
I made an 8 x 8 inch card.

The base papers and contrast are a lime green, the top paper is the one of the deeper black papers from the GCD Studios Paris Nights stacks (love this paper and it's linen feel) As it distresses so well, I distressed the edges, before adding a panel of black and white paper layered onto some more lime green that had been edge punched with the MS doily punch. Although you can see the lace under that panel, I sort of hid the panel with a copic coloured YG25 sheer ribbon, which I tied in a triple bow, and then added a gift from my birthday last year (thanks Janet, I tried so hard not to use it, but eventually I had too)  The image is stamped onto a grand nestie circle with the scallop frame.  The edges of the image plate have been distressed with TH crushed olive and over stamped on a second stamping, in the same colour. I added little black pearls around the image frame and some tiny diamante on the swirls of the image before adding some distressed roses.  Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and pearls and bling from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of the image, hope you can see that I added clear Atyou glitter over the boots, knickers, arm bands and bangles along with the hat, before adding some glossy accents to the glass in the goggles, the boots and the bangles.  Wow would kill for a pair of heels like those, wouldn't you. (Would probably kill myself walking in them and the husband might get the wrong idea)

and here is a close up of the triple tied copic coloured ribbon / bow with the large lacy silver heart charm just tucked under the centre knot.

I hope she likes it :)
