Wallpaper DP????

Evening Bloggers :) Thanks for popping over :)

You may be wondering what my post title is all about - well I was in The Range on Saturday and saw this fantastic Bratz wallpaper, as soon as I spotted it I knew I had to have some as backing paper for the fantastic Kenny K images that I love so much!

I'm afraid I didn't buy a roll (I didn't love it enough to make 3000 cards!), so I told myself I needed to rip a piece off the 'tester' roll to take and check it was what my niece had been looking for...........just don't tell anyone that my niece's are way too old or young to be into Bratz! Ceri wasn't very impressed with me - even at the checkout she was still asking "Mam, WHY do you want that?" After I gave her 'the eyes' I think she realised!

I've coloured 'Kitty Katastrophe' with Promarkers, used a couple of pices of ribbon and added some colour to white WOC roses. A few pins, jewels and gems and the 'Bling it on' is completed!

I added some faux stitching around the card using my fantastic Seamstress' Tracing Wheel - the most amazing NON-craft item you can buy for crafting! Let me know if you don't know what I'm talking about and I'll add a picture of it (when I get new batteries for my camera!).

Challenges I'd like to enter this card for.....

Wild Orchid Challenge - Stitching

Passion For Promarkers - Recycle
