Inky Impressions DT - Dress to Impress!

Good Morning again my fellow crafters!!! I'm back and this time with some great news too. I received an email asking if I would be interested in joining the marvellous Inky Impressions Design Team and as you can see from my post I just had to say YES lol!! How honoured and special do I feel that they asked me and not the other way around. Hope I'll be able to make them proud for having asked me!! Thank you so much! Anyhow onto this weeks challenge which is "Dress to Impress" and I've used the gorgeous Princess Lili stamp. The dps I have used are Tim Holtz Idea-ology and I've distressed all the edges and matted onto coredinations cardstock. The ribbon, lace and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have coloured my image in with Copics and used teeny tiny pearls on her tiara which I received from my bestest friend Paola, thanks girlfriend! The swirl is again my doohickey die. I'll be entering this card into the following challenges :
Allsorts - Flowers and swirls
CES - Make it Magical or Spooky
CLP - Fabby sketch
Crafty Catz - Ribbons
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Deep Ocean - Lace
Mad for Markers - Spring Time
Stampin' for the weekend - Tickled Pink
Thanks so much for stopping by yet again and sharing in my excitement. I do hope you'll join us over at Inky Impressions Challenge and show us what you've got. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
