Today’s challenge hostess is Betty. She challenged us to create a girly card decorated with Pearls, Ribbon and Glitz. Unfortunately it is also our last challenge with Betty. She is stepping down to spend more time with her family.

For my card I started out with the new gorgeous Feminine Charm set. I stamped the dress form in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (Dress form body: E50, E51, E53, W3   Stand: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9   Letter: E40, E41, E43   Flower and Heart: R22, R27, R29   Flower: Y13, Y18, R20, R22   Leaves: G21, G24, G28  Gold accessories: Y21, Y28).

The image was cut out and White Opal Liquid Pearls were added over the pearl necklace and gold Spica pen was added over the gold accessories.

Four different patterned paper square from the MME Lost & Found Urban paper pack were adhered to a piece of cardstock, then cut and embossed with one of the Grand Circle Nestabilities dies. The layers were stitched to a piece of black cardstock that was hand cut to a slightly larger layer.

A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the Fancy Tag 2 dies. The center was sponged with Tea Dye Distress ink. One of the images from Fancyful Flourishes was partly stamped over the tag with Tea Dye ink (stamped off twice). A sentiment from Feminine Charm was stamped in the center with Tuxedo Black ink.  Three small flower were twisted together and adhered to the lower left of the sentiment panel.

Part of Finesse Pearl swirl was adhered to the upper right of the patterned paper layers before the sentiment panel was adhered with dimensionals. The dress form was adhered over the sentiment.

The card base was cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Circle Nestabilities die out of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. A single layer was cut and embossed out of the same cardstock with the same die and the pieces were used to create an Easel Card. The card front layers were adhered to the single piece before that was adhered to the card base.

For the inside of the card a piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the same circle die used for the card front layers. A small strip from the Urban paper pack was cut with that die as well. The strip was adhered to the white layer and ivory Crochet Lace was adhered to the strip.

The layers were stitched to a slightly bigger, hand cut black cardstock circle. The crochet lace was topped with a yellow lace. The rest of the Finesse Pearl swirl was adhered over the button.
