Donna in Purple & Blue

I love finding things in shops that are not intended for card making, but just scream out "Put me on a card" when I see them.  Today's offering came when wandering around Primark.  This is what I found.

The silver earrings will go on two different goth influenced cards that I am working on and the six pairs of gold earrings/studs will go great on a variety of cards.  The long chain has three different strands on it and four different sized charms that I can use.  I have already used the black heart on this card.

I love Kenny K digi stamps so much, that I have a list of what I am going to buy next from there next to my computer.  This card started out as a white pre-creased card blank.  I have die cut an aperture using the largest die I could get away with and then fixed Kanban Glittered acetate to the front using eyelets.

I have used silver pen on her buckes and the teardrop tattoo and the wings have been coloured in sakura jellyroll pen which gives a lovely glitter finish.  The black heart that I  was talking about earlier has been attached to my Donna tag.  I find it hard to make a card without flowers these days, do I couldn't resist adding a few. :-)

I will be entering this card for the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - Something Clear - I used acetate
Totally Papercrafts - Bling it up - Plenty of glitter on this one :-)
Allsorts - Free and Easy
