Punches, dies, and diamonds..oh my!

Hola Stampers!

Today we have a challenge AND a blog hop brought to you by Guylou's Inimitability.
First off we have the challenge that I am hosting, YAY!  I love working with my Grand Caliber, my punches and who doesn't love some bling??? I used Leah at the cocktail party. I have always loved her and had yet to use her. I thought this challenge was the perfect time to bring her out  to play. I also am sad to announce that this will be my last challenge on the DT. :( I just have so much going on.. I had to step away from several things in my life to be able to stay sane. I will miss the team terribly. They are a great bunch of girls and G is amazing to work for. I will still be around lurking the challenges and blogs.. You all are not getting rid of me that

Anyway...on to the card and then the blog hop details!

She is really not that pale IRL. I could not get it to photograph quite right.

I hope you will also join us for this awesome hop, you do not want to miss out on these awesome prizes and not to mention the amazing inspiration from the DT...

    Now onto the good stuff...and I have to say...your card is good stuff!! I love all the different dp's that you used...and of course as usual your coloring is awesome (maybe she's had too much partying and that's why she looks a bit pale? lol). And the way you did the netting and bling ont he sentiment is an inspired idea.
