Dream Valley DT - For a Special Lady

Yippee! It's time for another Dream Valley Challenge which is 'For a Special Lady.' We have a very special lady sponsoring us - the wonderful Krista Smith of Saturated Canary What amazing talent she has! And one lucky winner will have a $10 voucher for her shop!

The DT were generously allowed to choose an image to use. This is Zorana a dancing gypsy Isn't she gorgeous?!

I made a criss-cross pocket to hold a detachable message. The fabulous papers are Basic Grey Pyrus, and I made the base from green card. The message insert is edged with gold card cut with a Nestie die.
 Zorana has been coloured with Promarkers and the edge distressed with Tea Dye Ink.

This is, in fact, going to a special lady, the author Sarah Rees Brennan who has written a terrific trilogy beginning with The Demon's Lexicon. One of her characters is a magical dancer! I'll be sending this via her publisher as a thank you!

So have a go at our Challenge, it doesn't have to be a card, remember, just something for a Special Lady! Hop over and have a look at the creations of our exceptionally talented DT!

 Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

 Promarkers: Shale, Warm Grey 4, 5, Pastel Beige; Terracotta, Sunkissed Pink, Coral; Ruby, Berry Red; Amber, Ginger, Spice, Burnt Orange, Honeycomb; Pastel Blue, Denim Blue; Moss, Pear Green; Gold

Once again a fantastic card. I love the image, I am going to have to get me some of these, but does she only do digi's cause I'm rubbish with colouring them?
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi again, Mags!! :)
Just had to stop and say how much I love this card, too (as I didn't manage it last week!! :S)- I'm not usually one for orange but with the gorgeous way you've coloured her and the muted shades in those lovely papers I'm won over!! :) This image is actually sitting on my desk waiting to be coloured... wonder if I'll be brave enough to try my neglected orange PMs... not that I'm sure I'd have any papers to suit if I did!!lol
Thank you, too, for your kind comment on my SC card- it was really lovely of you and very much appreciated atm!! :)
Hope you have a good week :)
hugs, Rachel xx
