Creative Belli 117 The Letter "S"

The Creative Belli Challenge for the next two weeks is, "The letter S".  

Think Spots, stripes, swirls, stars, shells, sandpaper, stickers etc
The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

"S" on the above card- Shimmery cardstock- can you see the red has gold shimmer in it?  It is called Rosso Incandescent and the Gold has stripes in it...It is called Laser Gold Glossy Lustre.   I made swirls out of the gold cardstock with stripes.  I also added shimmer with Gold Creative Inspirations paint to the Kimono trim. The red cardstock in the background is called Cherry Pop. 

I started with a background called Cling and Scrunch by the Technique Junkies. I added Gold embossing using an old SU background called Poetry. The Asian Doll is a digital image from Heart Song Designs.  (The owner is using all proceeds from the store to adopt a child from Ethiopia). I colored the image with Copic markers and highlighted with Gold Creative Inspirations Paint.  I added a punched swirly edge from the gold striped cardstock. The sentiment is from Create with TLC
