Milk Coffee DT - Celebrations

Hello all,

Hope 2014 is treating you well so far!

First of all, go check out the Ribbon Girl Challenge Blog... They have a fab new givaway! I just adore The Ribbon Girl! don't you?

It's time for the first Milk Coffee challenge of the year, and the theme is Celebrations.

I chose to use the gorgeous image "Tiffany Partying", and figured she needed a Little Black Dress to chime in the new year with... Ok, so the dress isn't exactly little, but you get the idea... I decided to go with a relatively "less is more" approach in terms of embellishments to try and give it an elegant feel.

After colouring her with my Promarkers, I thought the dress could do with jazzing up a little. So out came the Stardust Stickles (yes, as a matter of fact I do seem to use this on everything, lol). Her shoes are covered in glossy accents too, as is the glass, of course.

And this is what the dress looks like at an angle:

The paper and the gemstone letters came from The Works, the ribbon, brad and gems are from my stash.
The black mat is glittered card from Dovecraft. Trust me when I say the whole thing shimmers and sparkles in person!

So, after you've all been to see what my fellow teamies have prepared for you, you can come and join in the fun, no? Yes. And remember we love it if you use a Milk Coffee image, even though it's not essential.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Little Bit Crafty - Celebrate
Digi galore - Girly
Natalie and Amy's - One for the girlies
Party time Tuesdays - Party #153
Sparkle N Sprinkle - January challenge

Have a fabby day my dears,
