Mo's DP2 is Sweet Stampin with My Mum's Craft Shop and Sketch Saturday

Thank you to all of you who gave me some tips on my Picassa issue last week.  I do soooo appreciate it!    I hope to be able to show my appreciation by visting more of you early in the New Year.  In the meantime, I think I'm just about ready for Christmas having just about succeeded in being ready for hubby's birthday which was also this week!
This is the card I made for him which I am entering into the following challenges:
Mo's DP2 - The fabric of our lives
My Mum's Craft Shop - Anything goes
Sweet Stampin - sparkle and bling
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
I used this absolutely fabulous Mo Manning image called Queen of Hearts.  You can find it here.
I coloured her with Copics but then used Spica sparkly pens on top of her clothing to give the magnificent sparkle.  Her monocle, the gems on her crown and her heart topped staff have been glazed for extra shine.
The playing card Queen of Hearts in the background is a Sizzix embossing folder.  The DP with the hearts and other suits is by Stampin Up and the flourished purple strip is Paparmania. I used some netty fabric over ribbons from stash and the heart on the circular sentiment is also fabric.  It was lilac but I coloured it with my Copic pen.  A little card candy topped with red pearls adds extra bling.
