Unusual Hair - Julia Spiri Challenge #18

Good Morning Crafty Friends....hope you have been enjoying this fab weather we have been having the past few days, here in the UK, just hope it doesn't vanish too soon, I've been loving the heat!!

Well, it's time again for another new fortnight challenge over at Julia Spiri Challenge. As always we are an 'Anything Goes'' Challenge, but we do have twists too and this fortnight is 'Unusual Hair', so not your typically browns or blonde hair but more adventurous colours like purples, pinks, greens or blues...even rainbow hair!! For my DT inspiration, I have used the gorgeous Geisha and Cherry Blossom from the ''Spring Flowers Collection''.  For more wonderful images, challenge details etc, please follow the links at the bottom of the page!! And so here is what I created:-
My Project
Products Used
  Julia Spiri - Geisha and Cherry Blossom image
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
ProMarkers - Pastel Green, Salmon Pink, Tea Green and Ice Grey 1
Copic Ciao - Egg Shell and Cherry White
Bazzill Bling - Pink A4 card x 2
Spellbinders - Decorative oval dies
Britannia - Rose leaf die
Docrafts - Papermania Ribbon, Bow, Flowers and Coin embellishment
Pinflair - Antique Gold Buff-it
DecoArt - Crystal glamour dust
From My Stash - Pink glitter card, Patterned paper, Brads and Rose Gold glitter decorating chalks

On an 8 x 8 white scalloped card blank, I layered glitter card, bazzill bling and paper together, after rounding off the corners. I added the ribbon border, then printed, coloured and die cut out the image, layering this on to die cut pink bazzil bling and placing this as shown. To finish off  I decorated with flowers, die cut glitter leaves, bow with coin attached and pearls ...
