*Hot* Pink Fashionista

A very good morning to you, my friends . . .
Hubby and I just got back from breakfast and I'd like to share with you
 another card I made for the new challenges going on over at Joan's Touch.  

We are to use Pink & Black, a lady, a bow and product carried at Joan's Gardens.
All products used will be listed at the end of this post after my signature.

I LOVE vintage style and even though I would make ALL my cards in this style, that doesn't work well for the craft shows I do in the Fall.  For that, I need a variety, but am always so happy when I get to create something in this design style.
I colored my B-Line Designs stamped image using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and decided to add a little sparkle to her Fashionista style.  The stamp doesn't have a 'belt' in the design of her jacket but I added one using Quickie Glue and PK Glitz 'Glitter Glitz' Burgundy glitter.  I also sparkled up the collar and put a 'band' on her hat.

One of the items I purchased through Joan's Gardens are these awesome flourish dies.  They came as a part of a die set by Joy Crafts ... #6002/0258.  It's actually a 4 piece die set and even though I hadn't used this set up till today, I can see I'll be using it a lot more ... LOVE these flourishes and the 2 oval dies are just as beautiful!  
The hot pink Kaiser pearls also came from Joan's Gardens.

A few additional challenges are:
Craft Your Passion - Girlie Girl
Love to Create - Make it sparkle with Bling
Sweet Stamps - Anything Goes 
Oh La La Creations - Fashionista
 Sparkle N Sprinkle February - Anything Goes with loose glitter

Before I go ... here's a peek at the inside of today's card ...
 Thanks so much for stopping by today!
It's warming up outside (40s-50s next couple of days) so it appears
some of the 'white stuff' will be disappearing.
Hope you are having a fabulous day and please stop back again real soon!
