**My Kellita (Kellie's birthday hop) Blog Hop Post is below**
Oh wow what a week I have had for card making. Started off so positive on Monday and was flying along but then yesterday as I sat down to make my card for this challenge a wall went up and I could not get past it. I ended up making a card and then realised that it really did not suit this weeks challenge but in fact was perfect for next weeks. So back to the drawing board I went. I played, chopped up paper, coloured, re sized, changed directions (just about everything you can imagine) and ended up leaving it. This morning I sat down to try again and it was still not coming and I thought that I might just have to send my apologies to Kel and the girls and not participate this week. However I really hate disappointing and not doing my part so after a strong cuppa and a read of Kel's blog hop (sorry off topic but OMG how awesome are every ones cards, if you don't know what I am talking about see my post from this morning) I started again and I actually got one made, phew! Still not my favorite card in the world, think it is missing something but it certainly does have lots of BLING! More than what the photo will show.
I had so much fun colouring Lilith and even decided to try the hair strand look and have to say am pretty happy for my first attempt. You know what they say practice makes perfect.
Where's the bling you may ask, well it is on the ribbon, around the edges, on Lilith's skirt and hair bow, the boarder of the image box and the swirls are tiny rhinestones too.
Now please be sure to pop over to the LLB and check out all the super talented DT's cards. They really are amazing. Don't forget we are giving away a Lolita each week as a prize. I look forward to seeing what you do with our challenge this week.
