Best day ever - DT call

Hi there, I have decided I will try out for my first DT call. 
I love sugar nellie stamps although i don't own a lot of them. The one here that i am submitting is one of their retiring digital stamps called "best day ever"  You can still purchase her here
I am entering this card project into the Sugar Bowl DT call

I have coloured the image with derwent inktense pencils and mounted it on a frame of Spellbinder nestabilities dies. The cardstock and paper are from kaisercraft and the flowers are from I am roses. The leaves and little branches I made with two martha stewart punches.
The card fold I have used is quite simple and I call it a butterfly fold. I'm not sure if this is actually what it is called but thats what I call it :)  Below you can see the inside of  a card I made previously and get an idea of the fold. You simply have a normal folded card and then fold the front of the card back by half. Creating a bit of a Z shape. Sorry I should have taken a photo from the top of the card but alas I have already posted the card to my friend.
Well fingers crossed and thanks so much for dropping by.

This is the card open and on display.
I have coloured the stamp with inktense pencils for the foundation and then added details with polychromos. The berry branch die is from la la land and the circle doily type die is from spellbinders. I have used liquid pearls for the berries.

The sentiment stamp is from kaisercraft and i used tan inktense toe give it the same shading as the main image. All cardstock is from kaisercraft.

I have coloured her in with polychromos pencils and mounted her on kaisercraft cardstock and paper. I embossed the edge of the frame with red embossing powder and then sprinkled some transparent glitter over it. The frame was made with a martha stewart punch. The sentiment stamp tickets are from whimsy stamps (from memory)

Hello there. Another challenge entry coming up.
 This is being entered in the Kit and Clowder November challenge - Christmas
I have used a kraftin kimmie rubber stamp called Aurelia and fussy cut her out. I love colouring this one up for Christmas cards.
I have coloured her with inktense pencils and used the gold and silver polychromos pencils for a bit of shine.
The embossed sentiment is part of the stamp set and i used a spellbinders nestabilities die to cut it out.
The embossed note music is a kaisercraft stamp.

Thanks for stopping by
have a great day
