CYP and SALS Collide!!

As you may know I am on both the Seems a Little Sketchy and Craft Your Passion design teams run by the fabulous Jenn. SALS is a fortnighly challenge and CYP weekly and every now and then I have the opportunity to combine them and with me being a bit time poor this week it was a perfect week for me to be able to make one card for both the challenges!!
This week at Craft your Passion we have an inspiration challenge and are sponsored by Some Odd Girl and Seems a Little Sketchy obviously has a sketch and we are sponsored by Bugaboo.
So this is the picture we had for inspiration at CYP...
... so I used the colours of the rainbow as inspiration for my card!! Admittedly it would be an extremely bright rainbow but the colours off the rainbow none the less. :)
Perhaps I'd had a few tequilas when Í took the photo of this card cos it looks awfully crooked..LOL!!
Anyway, I coloured JJ tequila and shoes in with Tria markers and added crystal effects to her martini glass and her glasses!! I used the eyelet border punch for the blue bling cs and added the orange ribbon over that. I cut the image out in an oval bu kept her legs and just fussy cut them!! And to finish off I added the purple buttons, the rhinestones and the sentiment. I just love this image, it was my mum's birthday recently and I made two cards and ended up giving her the one with JJ tequila and shoes cos it just suited her!! LOL! She loved the card too!! I'll have to post it soon and show you!! Maybe one day this week in between working and organising Logan's 6th birthday!!
Well that's enough blabbering fro me.. be sure to head on over to the CYP and SALS blogs to see what the rest of the DT have created!!!
