I recently won a top 3 at the fab Do You Stack Up? challenge blog and the lovely ladies there offered me a GDT spot - how could I refuse :) 
The challenge this time is "Use your favourite colour" (sorry, I just can't use the American spelling lol) so I thought "woohoo, I'll be able to do purple" but then they told me I'd have to use this super cute image called Princess Kitty from Karen's Doodles and I then though "agh, you can't have a purple cat", then I stopped panicking and just got on with it, so here's what I came up with. I don't think I've ever actually used more purple on one card before....
Image: Princess Kitty from Karen's Doodles, coloured with promarkers
Papers are all Wild Rose Studios, all bling and pearls coloured with promarkers
black card from The Papeterie

Here's a close up of her bonny wee face to show that I used Glossy Accents on her eyes and heart pendant, and Glamour Dust on her crown.
Thanks to the girls at DYSU for having me this week, it's been a real pleasure. Remember to pop over and have a go at the challenge and see the other fab creations from the DT.
