Introducing Adrian Dry, The Bollywood Collection, and a prize for me Yay!

Hi folks!
I hope you don't mind but I have lots to share with you today. Not long now before the kiddies go back to school... more crafty time for us mums ;o) I'll have more time to visit your blogs, please excuse my lack of commenting this week.
I am introducing my new range over on Sandra Dry Digi Stamps with a card I made with three challenges in mind. Cupcake Craft Challenges wants to see 1 layer cards, A Spoon Full of Sugar is asking us to use die cuts or punches and Lili of the Valley has a theme of 'fun' this week. I don't know about you but I always have fun when I'm dancing. Admittedly it's usually Salsa but Saloni looks like she's having fun on my card.

I printed The Royal Pavilion onto red card to create the background. The corners are a Cuttlebug die that I used to cut into gold mirri board. You can just about see the sheer gold ribbon and bow that I added (I didn't want to cover the background image too much this is also the reason the Tag didn't make it onto the card). Saloni has been coloured in using Koi watercolours. I used an embossing pen and gold embossing powder for the trim on her outfit and part of her headpiece. I added two tiny gems to her headpiece and one to her naval. I finished off the card by adding more gems to the black base layer.

My husband, Adrian, drew The Royal Pavilion years ago and I am thrilled that he has let me produce it as a digi stamp to compliment my Bollywood dancers. I remember it took him a very long time to draw but it was well worth it. I absolutely love it (puts my drawings to shame). Let me know what you think and I will pass on your thoughts to him.
(Edit: Have added the option to buy The Bollywood Collection as a set for only £4.99 here, scroll down to the bottom)

Lastly..... I'm this weeks winner over on The Pink Elephant Challenge!!!! I can't believe it!!! I am elated. Thank you so much for choosing me... I shall display the badge with pride. Click here if you would like to be taken to the winning card.
Ciao for now!
