1st ever digi stamp card!

#Card #craft #gothic #emo

I may be converted to digi stamps! I needed to make a card for my soon to be 18 cousin who is an alternative dresser (emo). I knew i didn't have anything in my stash that i could use for her and remembered i'd seen some gothic looking digi stamps. so i set off to the web to search and came across some great ones on stitchybear, here is the link for this one, and there are plenty more on there similar to this one. And i know i can use this for quite a few of my nieces. 
I was going to keep her black and white, but printed out 2 so i could practice colouring her in. I used this, to help me colour her in, and for a 1st job i am quite proud of myself :).

The paper is from an Anna griffin pad i bought in Florida 3 years ago, and have only used twice. it's all so beautiful i can't bear to use it! The rest is mainly from my stash, the ribbon from the inside of a top, 2 gems in the flower centres, 2 on the craftwork card greeting and 3 coz it looks pretty! I used black glitter card to layer her onto and a black card blank. and if you were to look in my wardrobe you would find mainly black, white and pink :)

I'd like to enter it into the following challenges
