Catch the Bug Challenge - 25/12/10

The topic for the challenge this week at the Catch the Bug Challenge is "Let's Ring in the New Year".  I have used this Bugaboo image of a lady having a good time at a party - so much so she's having a rest on the floor!!!  She certainly is a character.  I have coloured her in with Promarkers and added some bling all around her with dots of Sakura Stardust clear pen.  I have then used three different sizes of my Nestabilities die and cut her out so that I could pyromage the image up (this is an idea I picked up from a recent Spellbinders show on Create and Craft that Sue did - hope you don't mind me pinching the idea Sue!!!).  I've layered the image on some silver mirri card so you can get some extra glimmer at different angles.  All the pieces of paper are from the scraps box in various shades of purple and pearl effect papers.  The piece just below the image is my own handiwork with alcohol inks as I have grown to liking playing with these as I normally don't do messy things.  The card is then finished off with some flowers with glittery flower and brad centres, some ribbon and a sentiment off the computer.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
Digi Doodle - Anything goes
Sew Many Cards - Anything goes
Craft Your Days Away - Punch it out

Paper Playtime - New Year
For Fun - New Year
Delicious Doodles - Purple Reigns
Totally Papercrafts - Time to party
Corrosive Challenge - Bring on the bling - sparkly flowers and sparkled image courtesy of Sakura Stardust clear pen
Little Red Wagon - Leftovers - the wide ribbon is a leftover from a long eaten box of chocolates but I didn't have enough to tie a knot so I've used a narrower piece I had in my stash to do a faux knot!!
Paper Pretties - Ring in the New Year - Lots of silver on this card, circles over the largest backing paper and a circle ring clip.
