Challenge 111 - Celebrating any occasion

It's been a long time since I posted on here.  I was busy with costumes for a Panto and then I've not been very well but hopefully I'm over the worst now and will be getting back into crafting.  

We still have a week left on the DT call so hop over and have a look

Over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have a wonderful sponsor with

and the theme is 
Celebrating any occasion

Prize: 3 images from the store

I used an image I already had as it fitted the theme perfectly it is called Princess, a colouring page.  I have used this image to make a Wedding card.  I know what you'll say about the colour of her dress but I like a little colour and would choose a dress with colour for myself.  I used my Spectrum Noir pens and some double sided card from Create and Craft.  In the sale they were selling a £150 box of goodies for £20, who could miss this.  I was really pleased with the package and can see myself using everything that was in the parcel.  Once again I used my Tonic Deco oval dies, love these dies. My sentiment is a Die'sire sentiment. The gold ribbon was from Craft Den Studio and the red was from my stash, probably off a box as I had 2 pieces just long enough to go over the front of an A5 card.  The bling is from a pack of bling for the body, they were on offer and about a quarter of the price of craft bling, sometime you just fall lucky.   Enough of the waffle here is my card.

Now you've seen my card why don't you hop over to the Challenge and show us your Celebratory project.  As long as you follow the rules you will be in with a chance to win the wonderful prize.
