Digi Haven DT Card

I was so pleased to be asked to be a guest designer for Digi Haven for the current monthly challenge which is "Anything Goes", and then I was delighted and amazed that I was asked to become a full DT member!  I've been playing along with most of the challenges since the Digi Haven blog started, so, of course I jumped at the chance to join the DT. All you have to do to play along is to use a free digi, there are loads of links on the site to free images of all sorts, and hey, who doesn't like a freebie?!  I certainly do and I'm slowly amassing a huge collection!
This lil' cutie is from Sliekje, she has some gorgeous images, all of them free, I'm a massive fan of them.  You can find the one I used here, but do have a browse through them all as there are so many to choose from.
I coloured most of the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and paper pieced the kimono with two different papers.  I then added a silky lustre to the front panels, where the kimono opens, with a Sakura Pen and some Aqua Stickles.
The papers are all Papermania Oriental, from a collector's pack, as are the tag and photo corners.  I've had it lurking in my stash for ages, I'm not sure why I don't used it more often as the bright colours and bold colours are very much up my street.
I finished my card with a coin charm, some baker's twine, a bow and some pink and blue pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sweet Stampin' - inspired by a song - Turning Japanese by the Vapours
Ladybug Crafts Ink - paper piecing
Shopping Or Stash - #66 - use your favourite things, I used patterned papers, a free digi and a bow
Craft Room Challenge - pins and/or charms, I used a coin charm
Sweet Stamps - #81 - favourite techniques, I love colouring with Promarkers and paper piecing
Use it Tuesday - #38 - ribbon.  My hoarded item is the ancient paper pack I used
