Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  Can't believe the week is halfway by already!  I am feeling a little better every day so I hope to be back to normal soon.  I am popping in really quickly to share a card I made for a couple of challenges.  It is for the first challenge on the new Jackson's Digital Expression blog. The team launched the new blog and challenges on Monday and I thought I'd  play along.  The theme this time is "anything goes".  I used Card Patterns Sketch #160 for my layout.

Here is the Card Patterns sketch:

Here is my card:

I started with a card base of GKD Black Onyx and layered with patterned papers from the Prima Melody 6x6 pad.  My image is She's Fierce from Fine Arts by Robert Jackson.  You can find her on his site here.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I added some Stardust and Peacock Stickles and some clear rhinestones for some sparkle on her hat, handbag and earrings.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A few more rhinestones and some Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you soon!
