Ruffles by Rick St Dennis DT card for 613 Avenue Create

Hi everyone, the weekend has nearly finished. I overslept after having a late night trying to get a couple of DT cards finished (including this one, I'd coloured the image but late night brain freeze had set in and I couldn't think what to do with her!) I missed breakfast so put off taking my diabetes medication until lunchtime. I got stuck into the dishes and several loads of washing, I still have to hang out my son's work and gym clothes!
I had a fairly full weekend, yesterday I was up and making a card in the morning for a GD spot which I will be posting on Monday, so look out for that one and also my regular Make It Monday post. Our Saturday craft group started back as our host, Judy, was back from her overseas holiday and we got together a bit early so we could go out for lunch to celebrate one of the "girls" 50th birthday! We had a nice lunch, although, I chose the sweet and sour pork from the lunch menu and it wasn't fabulous. We spent the rest of our group time just catching up and checking out some of the places Judy went to. Next week we are going to meet at the craft and quilt show for some craft shopping therapy, lol. I got back home just in time to get ready to go out with my hubby for a dinner with some of our friends from the church we used to go to. A good time was had by all!!! and we got home late.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend too.
It's time for another challenge at 613 Avenue Create - there were so many entries last week, all wonderful. We are looking forward to another batch of creativity this week today as our theme is Anything Goes and who doesn't like that one!
Our sponsor is the fabulously creative Rick St. Dennis and I chose this elegant lady called Ruffles to create my card with. I coloured her with colours I don't normally use much and I think she turned out pretty well.
What do you think?
Here she is.........

Cream coloured cardstock from stash
Black cardstock from stash
DP is from Kaisercraft 61/2" paper pad - 75 Cents (LOL, wish it cost that much)
Image is Ruffles from Rick St Dennis
Sentiment is from SU - Express Yourself
Punches - oval and scalloped oval
Die -
Copic Markers
Foam Dots
D/S tape roller
Pearls from stash
