Raise the Bar

Raise the Bar Challenges had a extra special request.....
Would some of the EDT of Rick St Dennis like to contribute to the DT cards for their current sketch? Well I was colouring in another of these fabulous images of Rick's and I do like to follow some sort of sketch as inspiration. What better way of showing this image off!
I had already chosen Candi as my image and my colours. Coloured here with promarkers with just a dash of  perfect pearls. Cut out and mounted onto a pearlised deep purple Die'sire die cut.
The sketch
My card
The background stamps are from TH. Heat embossed in silver onto purple card. I felt Candi had a touch of French in her so went in this direction. each piece die cut with a Die'sire die cut and backed onto a slightly lighter shade but edges inked with dusty concorde DI.
All mounted onto a lilac backing card. More of the lilac was used for the sentiment. Heat embossed this time in purple. The stamp is from a steam punk hand bag range from Creative Expressions.
A piece of silver edged lilac satin ribbon from stash. A large jewel mounted onto a small picture frame charm with some pearls hide the untidy edge of the feathers and a stranded string of lilac jewels adds yet more bling.
There's still time to enter the challenge at Raise the Bar for the chance to win some of Rick's amazing images.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenge at
