Now the important info is over I can tell you all about my card :)

The digi image Kasey's Birthday has been printed out 3 times.

Layer 1 the base layer is the whole image, Layer 2 is the dress and the hair and Layer 3 is the arms and sleeves. I have decoupaged the layers with 3d foam squares and the image has been coloured with Promarkers.

The scalloped mat has been highlighted with a purple inkpad around the edges and Stickles glitter glue. I have added gems to the hairslides and shoes for buckles. The flowers in the corners are the confetti type which shimmer with an irridescent pink and purple and I have added pink gem centres.

The square card has been covered with a paper from Dovecraft Eastern Blooms collection which had the 2 butterflies on it. I have embellished them with gems and some glitter and added trails. the purple butterfly has been made with a Martha Stewart punch. I have folded and glued 3 together so that they are really 3d and added some bling. The card has been finished off with some lace and a sentiment from my stash.

Leigh's images are so much fun to work with. They have such a bold and clean style to them, are excellent to decoupage and add dimension to them. I am really enjoying working with them and I am sure you will too.

Leigh's got some fabulous new designs that are being brought out and I know you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to take part in the blog hop and the new challenge and GOOD LUCK :)
