A Tasty Read - Digi Bell's DT

I am a bit behind making cards at the moment as last week was absolutely full on and I was just exhausted and just lost my mojo!! I actually have a card sitting here on my desk that I started last week, have added to it a few times, changed my mind a million times and am still unsure how to finish!!
But today is my turn to post on the Digi Bell's blog so last night I chose this Elisabeth Bell digi - A Tasty Read to create with and was determined to make and finish a card! And I did and I love how it turned out!!


Sorry about the picture, another busy day so didn't get a chance to take a photo before sun down!! I will take a better photo tomorrow and come back and replace this one!! I have got a close up of the image too but blogger is not playing nice and for some reason the photo won't upload. Anyway, enough excuses...
I already knew I wanted to do a grey and pink card so found this Kaisercraft Paper in my stash which worked perfect!! Although it did take awhile to decide which side of the DP to use!! The other side was striped!! I followed the Sketch from Fussy and Fancy so once I'd coloured A Tasty Read  in with my Tria markers and added a touch of glitter with my Wink of Stella pens, the rest of the card came together!!! I pierced the edge of the pink CS and used an Emerald Faeries Garden setiment. Then added bling , buttons and flowers but not too much because I didn't want to lose the DP under all the embellishments!!

The BINGO Challenge is still going on over at Elisabeth Bell's World and some wonderful digi's are up for grabs and don't forget to check out the Digi Bell's Blog on a daily basis to see what the talented Digi Bell's DT have been creating!!
