Free stamps and challenges

I joined a card challenge for one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. The challenge is sponsored by Inka Stamps. She sent us a free stamp and embellishment, and in return, we have to make a card with it. What a deal, right? The image she sent us was perfect for me. This card isn't my challenge card. That isn't done quite yet (waiting for paint to dry). Group members will vote on 10 cards and the winning card is put on Inka's web site!

I stamped the image and used Prismacolors and gamsol to color it. The background piece, which you can't really see, is Silken Mist, a Technique Junkies technique. I went over the skin with my Sakura star dust pen, so it sparkles. The card stock colors are white (from Papertrey), Blush Blossom (SU!), Stardream Matallics in Malachite, and then Sky Blue for the base. I added some bling in the corner and some fiber and metal charm that says Celebrate. My challenge card will be posted when I get it all done. But for now, I wanted to show this gorgeous image.
