Fancy Dress

Another late night:) I made this card tonight to enter into the Getting Cricky Fashion-ista Challenge and Scrapbookaholicbyabby Challenge#9- Use bling.

I think it's no secret that I'm a huge Hello Kitty fan! I just had to use her for this fashion challenge!

Photographing this card was so a bit tricky because of the colors.  I hope you can see the details in this lighting!

You can click on each picture for a larger view.

So...Hello Kitty went shopping and fell in love with a fancy new dress:

The top of the dress is shimmery and the skirt has some glittery dots on it.  I added some crystals to give it a bit of a sparkle.  It's hard to see it, but I added some glossy accents to the side of the heart and the little circles that lead to the thought bubble. 

I added some stitching to the borders of the card, embossed the pink background with a large dot folder, and popped everything up with pop dots.  Here is a side view.
