Charisma #11 - To 'Die' For

This week at Charisma, it's my turn to set the challenge! I've chosen a theme of 'to Die for' in other words, use dies or die cuts :)

Our lovely sponsors this week are:

One lucky winner will receive 5 digis of their choice!

Digis with Attitude are offering a CAD10 voucher!

and finally:

I've used this gorgeous digi stamp, I'm not sure who it's by but if anyone knows please leave me a comment so I can give credit! Coloured with promarkers and cut with Oval Nestabilities dies. I've used MS doily lace border punch on the card edge and the purple centre strip. The ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is a stamp by Dovecraft. The metallic gold pearls I picked up on my most recent USA visit. I've added a touch of stickles to the flower middles to give some sparkle, and put a layer of glossy accents over the vase to give the illusion of glass.
Thanks for visiting :)
