I COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT

I made this card for the Outlawz challenge Paper Ala Mode.  The image was one I received from Anne Fenton as part of another challenge.  I was really torn as to what challenge to enter this into but decided to go with the Paper ala Mode Silver, Gold or Sparkly theme.  Full credit to Anne for this perfect image!

I colored the dancer with Copic markers.  I used dp from Reminisce: Wedding Stripes, glitter card stock from Best Creation color #GCS014 Black and the card stock is Waussau Royal Metallics paper pack in the color:  Excalibur Steel on Black Knight.

The embossing plate is a Cuttlebug.  I put little tiny pearls on her earrings and necklace but....once I ran it though the Grand Caliber to die cut it out...it smashed them flat,  I really like the way they turned out (not at all planned), so I left them as they are.  The velvet ribbon is from my "stash" (lucky me!)

For some reason I really love this card.  She just looks so ready to party for New Year's Eve.....Probably one of my all time personal favorites!
