DICC Sponsored by Dilly Beans!

Greetings! Where is the time going? I feel like I am running around in circles...getting nowhere fast. I am excited. Today is my very first cooking show as a Pampered Chef consultant! I hope it all goes well...I think that it will. Fingers crossed! Thankfully, I managed to finish my card for today! It's time for a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. And we now have sponsors! This time around, our sponsor is Dilly Beans! What an awesome bunch of digis they have. It was soooo hard to choose just one. I can't wait to get some more. But first, here's the itinerary, conjured up by my good friend Jenn (and co-DT member)

1. Lots of purple
2. Skulls
3. Bows'Ribbons
4. No Patterned Paper/Designer Paper
5. At least 3 Buttons
6. Wings
7. Metal Hardware
8. No More than 3 colors (besides black, white, and flesh)
9. Tearing/Torn Edges
10. Anything but a Card

So for my card I used #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9. And the image I worked with from Dilly Beans is Pinky's Skull Bow.

I think she's adorable! I love her skully bow. I colored the image using watercolor markers and Copics. I love her pretty little face. My kidlings really like her too... I will need to print her out a few times for them!


I hope you can see that in the background, I used some very pale shaded of blue. My sentiment is from Smeared Ink, and I glittered it up with a Glue Pad from Tsukineko and Martha Stewart glitter.

I hope you've enjoyed my project. This was a fantastic itinerary, so I do hope you will play along. Especially now that we have Dilly Beans as our sponsor! Be sure to visit the DICC Blog to see more rad projects using this itinerary. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
