Party Girl

Welcome back to day 2 of our birthday celebrations over at STAMPlorations. Hope you were suitably impressed by all the party inspired projects by the girls, I was.
Today I'm using the Party Girl set of stamps by Shirley for my card.





We are off to a friends daughter's 21st at the end of July so I needed a card so that was the inspiration for this. I wanted something elegant for the occasion and to lengthen the dress in the set, then I noticed my Christmas Tree stencil on the desk and thought it could make a classy looking skirt.So that's what I did. I inked Versamark through the dotty tree of the stencil then embossed with silver pearl EP before adding the shoulders and head from the set to the dress. I thought the dress needed a little more definition, so added a few lines with a fine marker and shadow with  some Copic markers. I die cut 21 from some scraps of holographic card and added party girl from the Party Time set on the die cut circle. I used b/w DP as a background to the image, job done!

Check out what the rest of the team made! Today our guest designer is ANNI LERCHE.
