Time for another challenge from Whoopsi Daisy and this week we would like to see you use 'Brown & Pink' as your main colours. Do remember that you HAVE to use a WD image to enter the challenge and you can get a freebie here each week.

As you can see I have made a similar card to last week's one. (Comes of having ripped my craft room apart and only being able to get to a little of my stash). This time I have used a different elegant lady who I have coloured with promarkers. I have edged the dress and the sash with a gold sakura stardust pen for a bit of glamour but it doesn't show very well in the photo. I have then distressed around the image with chalk and an old eyeshadow adding pearls to the corners. I prefer the softer look of pearls rather than diamonds. On reflection I think I should have omitted the pearls as they look a bit heavy.

I have edged the gorgeous digi paper with gold peel-offs and added corners. A crescent of roses finishes the card. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
