Facebook Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

On the third Wednesday of each month the Facebook chapter of the Design D.I.V.A.S. has our Oldies But Goodies (OBD) blog hop.  This is when we use neglected and forgotten items from our stashes.  The Design D.I.V.A.S. is a private Facebook group which is a branch of the Original Design D.I.V.A.S. on the Splitcoaststampers website.  The acronym for the D.I.V.A.S. is Divine Inspirational Virtuous Artistic (or anointed) Sistahs.  This is a very talented and supportive group, which I'm blessed to be a part of.  Thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy the hop. If you came here from the lovely Maria's blog you are on the right track.  To start at the beginning hop on over to  my awesome friend Cindy's blog

For my card I used this luscious image of Anastasia by Make It Crafty

The photo looks darker than I intended, sorry.  Basically the red, black and silver combination seems to be a favorite of mine lately.  The image is new, but the flowers and brads are from my neglected stash.  The frame is Nestibilities and one that I rarely use.  It's not that I don't like it --- I actually LOVE it but I often end up with images too large to fit.  This one is just right!  The papers are from my scrap pile and the border nearly hidden underneath is a Martha Stewart punch.  

Here's a close-up.  I colored the image with Copics and highlighted the red roses and hair with more bling. I like how this turned out and I'm happy to share it with you.  Now, be sure you visit all the talented D.I.V.A.S. in the hop!  You'll be so inspired!  Your next stop is my talented friend Sue's blog.  Thanks for stopping by!
