CES Challenges DT Card............My Queen Of Hearts

Hello my lovelies how are you are? I'm sooooo sorry I'm late today but there is a reason. Now I have a new BIG love & its the fabulously talented artist Krista Smith........OMG I could sit with 2 piles of images, 1 Crafts & Me images & 2 Saturated Canary images.........I would sit happy all day long just colouring, actually all year long lol. Anyway when I saw her latest release I rushed to buy them, I have soooooooo many already but I'm addicted.........I currently have 6 & half coloured up ready for projects so be prepared to see these beauties a lot!! I had a fab idea for this image but wanted to run it thru Krista 1st......I waited all day for the e-mail but nothing...........or so I thought!! Went bed at 12 was talking about it to hubster for him to tell me she did e-mail he had forgot to tell me arrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...................... So with his encouragement, finished colouring 1 image & then went into hobbit to make my creation...........I emerged at 3.50 am to come inside & take piccies..................so I'm a bit erm pooped lol.
Anyway the theme over at CES Challenges our lovely Julie picked & it is........
RIBBONS & ROSES
Soz bout some of the pics.............the matchsticks on my eyes kept ruining my camera shot!!
Warning photo heavy!!!

This beauty is my 'Queen Of Hearts' I say mine cus she is mine now lol.........ssshhhh dont tell Krista!!
Isnt she gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!

Gorgeous seam binding ribbon,gems, pearl & charm saying 'Made With Love' are from my stash......

Painted a wooden heart (love these) with white acrylic & then edged it with Vintage Photo ink.

6x6 card blank, Prima 'Romantique paper & selection of flowers all from Crafty Emma's Store.
All paper matted with Kraft card & both edged with Vintage photo.

This is my fabulous idea..............make a playing card........well she is the 'Queen Of Hearts'
This is a matching tag to go with the card. I've used the same ingredients as on the card.

All flowers were sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist.

The image I cropped 2 copies so it was just her top half & then 1 copy I flipped & mirrored & attached to the bottom & then tried to colour each identically........a bit of a task but sooooo worth cus I love it!!!!!
I rounded the edges of the playing card as they normally have rounded edges. Edges again inked. I forgot to go over the Q again with a bright red.............it was late tho lol.

Last piccy of them both together.......I'm actually rather pleased with this which does not happen very often believe me!!
Anyway I've rambled & babbled long enough. Please pop over to see my lovely teamies creations & we look forward to seeing your Ribbons & Roses.

Thank you sooooo much for stopping by & your lovely comments they really do make my day ;-)
