This was me yesterday, LOL, all a-twirl. I'm still not quite back down to earth ;-) Thanks again for all the sweet comments!!!
This set is from My Favorite Things' latest release and is called Dance the Night Away. Cosmo Girl is tres sophisticated (LOL), so I wanted my card to be very elegant, too. First of all, I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers and paper pieced her dress. The paper I used was from a K & Co. mat pad called "Roam". One of the DP in this collection has this lacy design and I thought it looked exactly like a lace overlay for a very fancy party dress. I love how that turned out! I added some jewels around the dropped waist and for her matching earring. I also decided that embellishments for this card needed to be big, so I added wide lace and wide ribbon. The big gold and pearl bauble was a button in another life--I just cut the loop off and attached it on top of the ribbon, and I finished it all off with some flat backed pearls on the punched out edges. Oo-la-la!
Here's the inside:
