Celebrate with a pretty dress...

 I´m loving this image! it´s Put on your party dress from Michelle Perkett. I colored the cute dress with colored pencils (no blending this time), glued some iridescent pink sequins and added tiny dots of pearl paint on the center of the flowers.
It might look a time consuming card but surprisingly it´s not; it took me less than one hour to finish it all, stitches included! So here is how I made it: I took a scrap piece of patterned paper and layered it with pink cardstock, then I added dots of pearl paint around the DP and added a few on it. Because I´m following Michelle Perkett Studio challenge sketch, I faux stitched strips with white gel pen and I real stitched light pink glass sees beads on their centers.
Then I placed the DP with foam tape on the center of the card, and on top of it I placed the image (with foam tape too), and added a sentiment that is an old clear sticker.
It looks better in real life, but I don´t have good light at home to take pictures at night... Thanks for looking!!

I´m playing at:
The Outlawz at their Thursday´s Prismas and other medium group: anything goes
The Outlawz at their Tuesday´s Color challenge group: pink and brown
The Outlawz at their Monday´s Birthday cards: pink brown and green
Michelle Perkett Studio challenge: sketch
