CHARISMA challenge - my first DT assignment!

it's a fabulous week, indeed! not only is the whole Make 'it' Crafty thing all official, and i'm the featured artist (!!!) at SNR, but now get to share my very first DT card for the Charisma Cardz challenges! (now if only i'd get that call back with a job offer!)

our challenge this week is for you to create something inspired by a song...
MUSIC is my lifeline, and i couldn't wait to play along with the Charisma Gals for this one! (such a perfect challenge for my big debut!)

prizes, you're wondering? why, YES! we have prizes!
1 winner gets to choose 5 digi stamps of their choice from Pink Cat Studio (FIVE digis, woot!)
1 winner gets a $20 store credit for Simon Says Stamp - that's a lotta swag, folks! and the shipping is COVERED!

i played with my very first Pink Cat Studio image, Lily Mermaid, PLUS i coloured up one of the fabby digi scenes available exclusively at Make 'it' Crafty, "Tropical Beach"... isn't it PERFECT for beachy/summery cards? the little shell and starfish were fussy cut and popped up, but they're part of the scene... here's my card:

(and i couldn't resist gettin' silly for the rest of the sentiment)

here's Lily all blinged up:

i was inspired by Barry frackin' Manilow, of all people! the song is "As Sure As I'm Standin' Here", and i tinkered with the title to make it work for my card.

wanna check out what the rest of the Charisma Gals have done with this one? you wanna play for the nifty prizes mentioned? share your SONG-INSPIRED creations with us, and play along by next Wednesday, and you could be one of the two lucky ones!
