Little Black Dress

Today's card is an order for a friend at work who requested something girly with cocktails. I did think of using my favourite Stampin Bella - Victoria and Juliette's night out, but after searching my digis I found the wonderful Party Rach from Digistamp Boutique...

I've 'dressed' her in a little black cocktail dress using Promarkers and used glittery patterned papers from a pad from The Range.

The greeting was done in hobo font and I've added a couple of die-cut mini leaf flourishes and some pink flat-backed pearls as embellishments. Finally I created a blingy necklace using a sparkly gem.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

 I ♥ ProMarkers #345 - birthday
Seize The Birthday - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers #417 - anything goes 
Craft Rocket Challenge #42 - birthday/pretty pinks
As You Like It Challenge - people or animals - always people. I struggle colouring 'fur' and making it look real. There's so much more variety with people, deciding what colour their outfit and hair should be and I often try to make the image look like the person it is intended for. But I don't like images with big eyes and heads - a big no no!!.

Thanks for reading my waffle!
