Isnt she a pretty princess

As some of you may remember from my post the other day, i am now on the design team for the digi garden, well here is another card i made using thier images!!! isnt she lovely, thier images are all cute and so easy to colour in.
Today sees the beginning of a new challenge over at Dutch dare card challenges and I made this card for the design team there, the theme is.....................RIBBON AND LACE.
the papers i used are from an old paper pad magazine freebie from kate knight,
I put star dust stickles on the edges to give it that bit extra sparkle, and the brads in the middle of the flowers look like buttons, and the dream come true ticket stamp is a whimsy stamp, these are so versatile.
I would like to enter these challenges

2. Totally gorgeous - Bling it on
3. The poodles parlour - Anything goes (3rd entry)
4. Fussy and fancy - Anyhting goes

Cards For men- Dt card

Here is my design team card for Cards for men, ive been a bit rubbish lately as started work so times been a bit pants for ym crafting, but im slowly getting back upto scratch lol, i hope my card was worth the wait lol!!!!
Our challenge at Cards for men this time round is.....BLACK AND ORANGE
and we are being sponsored by the amazing kenny k whom offered the dt thier images, dontcha just love kenny k cos i sure do!!!
Now i must admit orange and black was a tricky colour combo for me as i dont have lots of orange stash , but i managed to make this card,
its basically black and white with orange emblies.
here is a close up of the promarker coloured kenny k image, isnt she fab!!! my lad alex who is 6 chose it when he won a challenge on here bless him, along with 5 other younger style images,i think he was thinking of me when he chose this one as im a karaoke fanatic lol, the rest he chose where young boy images lol.
To do the ribbon i doudled up on 2 diff styles and twisted them together, i think it looks pretty decent??
