Hello there my blog friendlies and how are you on this bright and breezy morning (I haven't a clue what it is like really 'cos I 'scheduled' this post and therefore I am still in me pit with me eyes closed!!!)   However, this is a card for Lady Anne's Stamp Challenge No 10.  We were asked to make two DT cards this month because there are two sponsors and this one is for a mid-challenge reminder, as such.

I love this image by Rick St Dennis and was so chuffed to be able to colour it in for this DT card.  Think I might have gone a tad over-bling n feathery but I felt it was needed to go with the main colours of purple, pink and black! 
I did the mask in both black and mirri then put the mirri behind the black, slightly off centre, so that you can see the shine underneath.  I added several purple gems to the mask and the Venetian dies for bling.  My feathers were my last little addition.

  22. What a fabulous card Susie I love his stamps (RSD) and this one is a fav of mine too.

    Re your question about the pink roses on my card .
    They are from Hobby Craft. They have a huge selection of flowers and I think these were £2.00 something for a bunch , they have pinks, lemons and lilacs and all are ( two tone ) they are so pretty I stocked up on the pinks as I love pink .
    Glad to see you are taking a break in the sun .
    Sending you a big Hug Elaine
