Dressed to Party!! card

Hello folks!!  I hope it's ok to say... it was our Sam Poole's birthday recently and and this is the card I made for her.  I used the Artful Lady from the Artful Ladies stamp set.  Once stamped I coloured her with alcohol markers and snipped off her wings.  I Stamped her twice onto patterned paper and cut out her whole dress and also just the skirt.  Before 'dressing' the image I pleated some pink vintage seam binding and adhered to the bottom of the skirts.
The card is a C6 card (the first one I've made that size in a long time).  I wrapped some of the seam binding around the patterned paper and added the ribbon bow.
I also cut the little shoes out from the patterned paper and added a few gems to embellish them.  I stamped one of the Art Phrases onto acetate, cut it out and glued into place behind the bow.  The finishing touch was some more tiny gems in her hair and around her neckline.
I hope this piece will inspire you.
Ciao for now!
