Hot date or night on the town?

I have been itching to color Blanche from Saturated Canary  since I picked her up a few weeks ago.  I finally got some time to come up with a fun idea and PLAY! Also, I just recently got those fun brad pearls and thought they matched her earrings well.

Hope you all enjoyed today's card and hope the heat is more comfortable in your part of the world.

Here's a close up of this sexy digi image! I couldn't quite capture the sparkly in her eye shadow, but you get the drift.  

Stamps: Blache from Saturated Canary

Coloring medium/ink: Copics, Adirondacks inks

Papers: I believe it was from the Bohemia Collection.

Embellishments: Pearl Brads

Tools/Other: Embossing folder, Stampin Up punch, Spellbinders, Paper piercer, white gel pen, clear applique, pop dots, ribbon from stash

I will add her to the following challenges:
