Anya Ink Challenge - Guest DT Spot

This week I have the honour of being a GDT for Anya Ink. The challenge this week is "bling" and I have gone for a really old fashioned "Hollywood" glitz feel for my card. I wish you could see this IRL - it sparkles beautifully. I have used crystal stickles on all the edges as well as in the lace work created by my Martha Stewart punch. I have used my Copic Spica gold pen to give my "Marilyn" a sparkly gold lame dress and shoes. Her wrap has been covered in Dazzling Diamonds for more bling! And what does an old fashioned gal like as much as sparkle - pearls! "Marilyn" is sitting on a shelf of pink and cream pearls - with more placed around the card and on the satin bow.

To finish off the Hollywood feel I have computer generated a sentiment which was a famous quote by the late, great Marilyn Monroe herself. The DP is from my Basic Grey Porcelain paper pad.

BREAKING NEWS - Anya Ink has a new owner - my wonderful friend Kristy Young is taking over the challenge and has some exciting plans! But first she's having a new DT call!!! So what are you waiting for .... check out the requirements HERE and GOOD LUCK!

Now grab your bling and one of your TGF stamps and come along and have some fun over at Anya Ink!
