If you've got it, flaunt it!

Today's card uses another of the All Dressed Up images I coloured in October last year and finally got around to making up into cards.
The black "lace" is a Lifestyle die, I have matted the image onto black card and attached to card with foam pads, punched out the flower shapes and circles, die-cut the letters, then layered them up to make the alphabet buttons, which are fixed onto the card with foam pads to add dimension. I added a stick on gem between each letter. The sentiment was written on the computer, printed and then cut out with an X-cut die (I usually scan the die and take it into my graphics program, where I use it as a guide for the placement of the writing), which I then matted onto black card and cut around to leave the small border (the next size die up left a bigger border than I wanted).

Stamp - Wear with style girl 3 - All Dressed Up
Paper and stitching - Oohhlala digital scrap kit - Just So Scrappy
Lace Border die - Lifestyle die
X-cut Nesting dies - Bloom
X-cut palm punch - Flower - large
X-cut circle punch - medium
Die-versions Little Lizzie Font
Sentiment - computer generated
Stick on gems - Meiflower

Love this card! The pink and black look fabulous together contrasted with the white of the image and sentiment backgrounds. The image is adorable and beautifully coloured. I love the way you did the lettering of Style with the scalloped flower, bold lettering, and bling. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/Pop it up challenge at Craftitude this fortnight.
