Good Morning !!! I have seen this image done is so many different ways. I decided to make her a Luau outfit with Flower Soft. She is "Aurora - Out on the Town" from the Victoria Case Aurora Collection 2.

Aren't the Aurora images fun to color and work with? The DT had a color challenge this week Pink-Green-Blue and Viva products. The image is colored with Copics and accented with Ultrafine Raspberry Fizz Flower Soft. The center of the flower also has the Flower Soft and the stem has been glossed with Diamond Glaze. The pearls on her hat and her shoes were made with the Viva Decor Gloss Pen - Ice White. These pens go a really long way, I barely used any at all for the pearls. The pearls on the border (excuse the pic, I accidentally moved the last pearl and didn't realize it) are Kaisercraft flatback adhesive pearls. The butterflies were made with my MS punch and I used a really cool technique to get them so shiny. I punched the butterfly, put it on my versamark pad and then rubbed on some of the new Dreamweaver Mica Powders. For the edge of the doily I put in on my versamark pad and rubbed the Moonstone Mica.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Little Pink
Paper Sundaes - Stitching
Pile it on Challenge - Use Butterflies, Bugs or Bees
The Craft Den Anything Goes Challenge - Punches
The Crazy Challenge - Olive, Fushia, and Teal
One Stop Craft - Patterns
Paperplay - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Creative Friday - Things with Wings
Creative Card Crew - Let's Get Cute and Girlie
Creative Cottage - Touchy Feely - Stitching, Ribbon, etc.
Here is a close up picture of the butterflies and the edge of the doily. The picture still didn't capture the beautiful sparkle and shine of the Micas, but you can see some.

Be sure and check out the other DT projects here. They will definitely help get your mojo going.
Also, wanted to let you know Susana has some new goodies in:
