Hi all today sees a new challenge from 
the theme for this week is
the lucky winner will win 
For my DT card I have used this beautiful image called
'Gypsy Dancer' she makes me think of a 'free spirit' and the song sung by Cher called Thieves, Thieves, Tramps and Thieves, which I love.  I admit that I listen to the golden oldie radio channel that plays music from the 60's and 70's which is my era the songs always remind me of my teenage years, sorry for the bit of nostalgia, lol.
I have coloured her with Copics then added gold glitter to her Jewellery, dress and shoes, I have mounted her onto both dark pink and gold linen effect card.The papers are a mixture of Bearly Mine and Papermania both have also been mounted onto gold linen card.  For embellishments I have used a gold metal corner and flowers including the pearl one all of which I have bought from Wild Orchid Crafts, I also added a pink bow and stamped sentiment.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you like my card and please come join us this week we would love to see you.
