STAMPTACULAR #126 Diva-tacular

This week we are going DIVA-tacular at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  Come and create a card or a project with a Diva on it, ie, a girl image with attitude and/or style.  Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing! We are so lucky to be sponsored this week by Meljen’s Designs who have on offer four digi images and also by TeddyBo who have three digis for one lucky winner.I have used Prima Annalee papers, the leaves are cut with a Sizzix die and the remaining embellishments are all from stash.  The image is Willow Dressing Up by Whiff of Joy, coloured in Copics and Prisma pencils.   Not such great colouring for some reason - I just couldn't do the folds on her dress.  The sentiment is LOTV.
I was inspired in the making of my card by browsing the recent posts of two of my fabby teamies.  I borrowed the idea of the punched bracket motif from Tine (I used an EK Success punch and a Nestie for the framing of my image), and the criss cross layout idea I saw on Marianne's blog which also ties in so well with the sketch challenge I am entering.  They, together with all of my other lovely team members, have made wonderful projects to inspire you in this week's challenge.  Pop on over to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, share some love, and join in if you can!  We'd love to see you!

I am entering my card into the following challenges: 
Totally Gorjuss - "as you like it"
Sketch Saturday -  "sketch
Truly Scrumptious - "rocked up pink" - I took this to mean dressed up in pink
Charisma Cards - "glitter it"  - it's hard to see but Willow's jewellery, belt and shoes are sparkly.
Papertake Weekly - "dies to die for" - I used Nesties framing and Sizzix leaves
