Bling, Bling, Baby!

Hello again! Hope you are all having a wonderful day! Did you stop by, today, to hear all about today's new Saturday challenge at Catch The Bug? I hope you did!

Today's Saturday challenge at Catch The Bug is a fun one - A Photo Inspiration challenge. I sure hope you'll be inspired to play along with us - There are awesome prizes up for grabs, from Bugaboo Stamps! Come play with us!

To inspire you to play along with us in our Photo Inspiration challenge, I made this cute ATC (Artist Trading Card) to show you. I used the colors from the photo, from our photo inspiration challenge.  This ATC was made, actually, to swap with other ATC swappers, at Stampaway 2013.

My ATC uses the image Stella Red hat - Bling, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used paper flowers with gemstone centers, by The Paper studio. A real feather was used for the feather on her hat.  I finished off by blinging her up - By adding tiny gemstones to the image for her jewley - earrings, belt bauble and on the base of the feather in her hat. A clearstar gelly roll pen was used to add dsparkle to her ring and bracelets.

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:
