Midnight Madness, Shabby Tea Room

Last card this week, as we are going camping this weekend, leaving this afternoon.  Can't wait!!  Monday I start full-time hours at the law firm.  Finally!  The part-time hours were playing havoc on the savings account!  I've been at the law firm four months a 20 hours a week, and they asked me to go full-time.  Still getting used to legal side of things, considering I have worked in medical field since I was 15, but they say I'm doing a good job.  Okey dokey!

I had planned on using this "Ballerina Resting" digi image from Priscilla Styles for the Midnight Madness sketch, and when I saw that Crafty Cardmakers challenge was decoupage, this is what I came up with.  I printed the image three times, colored it with Copics.  Then I cut out the full skirt and then part of the skirt for the top layer.  I used scraps of Grunge Paper to pop the images up, as foam dots were too thick.  Added some Stickles and a few pearls for a bit of bling.

Nancy, what a beautiful job you did showcasing Priscilla's gorgeous Ballerina stamp. I love your flowers and the soft colors you chose. I love the popped up section. It gives the card some extra drama...not that it needed any. Wonderful job!! Thanks for joining us again at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
