One Stitch at a Time Challenge 41

This week on One Stitch at a time, we're sponsored by Digis with Attitude who are offering the lucky winner of this challenge a voucher for $10 (Canadian) to spend in their shop. To be in with a chance, you need to 'Celebrate in Style' - bring out bling, shine, glitz!
 
My card this week features 'Grumpy Gretchen' from Digis with Attitude. I thought she would look at home in a sixties style background, so I found a lovely, colourful background from a CD Rom from Crafty Computer Paper. In photoshop elements, I added a lilac layer on top of the inner part, and then placed Gretchen and her cake on top of that. I added the two sentiments - the first is also from 'Digis with Attitude' and the second was done in PSE.

I coloured Gretchen with Promarkers, then added some layering, and some background paper from MME. To finish, and to add some bling, I added some flower gems with round gems at their centre, some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and a butterfly.

Hope you can join us this week, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges: Pear Tree Designs whose theme is 'Colourful',
Karber Weekly who want us to use two or more papers and a digi,
Charisma Cardz who want 'For a Girl',
A Spoonful of Sugar where 'Anything Goes',
For Fun Challenges where 'Anything Goes'.
