Blackberry Ice Cream

I'm back with another card! Yes, this is another 'Lady Raven" digi from Kenny K Downloads. Long story short, I got some new violet Copics and  an E50, so I wanted to test them out on a image I already had printed, because who can wait to print a new image out when you get new toys to play with? So, I was so pleased with how her skin and clothes came out I had to make a card specially for her. And, this is what I came up with! For Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge, blackberry is the ice cream theme I am going for in honor of the blackberries I have in the freezer from our garden waiting to be used !

I made the flower about a month ago and thought it was perfect for this card! The papers are from Prima's Nature Garden, beautiful! The bling is Say it in Crytsals, I think, and the metal corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts! I used a Martha Stewart punch for scallops and it does a beautiful job of standing in for lace. I have a hard time with using lace, especially black lace. To me it looks lingerie-like and out of place on a card, but my taste changes frequently and I am slowly warming up to the idea.
Here's my beautiful lady colored up. I need to practice more with black hair, but I am really happy with her light and bright face. I swear her butt has more shading IRL! Kenny K images are so fun to color, but I,at least, need to venture away from Lady R for a little bit! 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Kenny K's Krafty Krew (ice cream- blackberry)
Dream Valley Challenges (die cuts and punches- doily lace punch)
Shopping Our Stash (monochromatic)
Papertake Weekly (Anything Goes)

Thanks for having a look and keeping me inspired. I don't know how you crafty peeps do it! It's so fun, but without you guys to look up to and be inspired by, I wouldn't be able to do it! The creativity and talent out there is astounding, intimidating and motivating! Which bring me to saying a big thank you for all the challenge blogs out there and their fabulous DT's !!!
