Diamonds and Pearls

Good evening every one. it's been a few days since my last post but I havent been idle I promise.
However I was rather bad at the weekend I have to admit. I treated myself to the 150 set of Prisma pencils. I went up to Crafts u Love near Gatwick (2hr round trip, now thats dedication!). I just couldn't help myself!
On a plus note I now have a brand new unused set of 72 Prisma's in a tin up for sale.
 The price at Crafts u Love is £79.99 but I would be willing to let them go for £55 plus £5 postage and packing. If you are interested drop me a line on I will post a picture of the pencils later tonight or tomorrow.
Sorry sold!!
Now onto my card for this evening.....

I have never made this shaped card before. It has taken me nearly 2 weeks to get my head around it. I think it came out all right though. I cute the shape using my Cricut and then cut several lays in decreasing sizes for the mats.

The cute image is Pricilla Pie a ragamuffin by the talented Krista Smith. I coloured the image using Prisma's and then matted onto chocolate bazzil card. The flower I made using a sizzix flower die. The butterfly is a Marianne die finished with pearls. Pricilla had little pearls drawn in her hair but I decided I wanted to use crystals to make her hair sparkle

Challenges I would like to Enter

I hope you like it and thank you for looking. I appreciate all of your comments and visits.
