Flash Back Friday

Happy Friday everyone!! This week is finally over!!

A few things that I did this week was to see "Pitch Perfect 2" with Charlotte, my niece and my nephew. I have to admit that I liked it but thought it would be a bit better then it was. It was fun to go to the movies, though, something I love to do.

On Wednesday I went on a field trip to NYC with work. The kids got to attend some great work shops for acting. I attended the "Stage-Combat" workshop (this was the class my student chose to attend). It was fabulous! So interesting to learn that a lot of what is seen is really the "victim" moving the physical action rather then the aggressor. We then went to see "Les Miserables" on Broadway. It was a LONG but really enjoyable day.

Today I am posting a card that I created for someone that I work with. Their instructions were to make it "really girly." I chose to use the dress stamp from the retired Stampin Up! set "Haute Couture" as the inspiration for my card.

I stamped it in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in using Copic Markers. (RV04, RV06, RV09 and RV13) I love the vibrant pink!! I then stamped the sentiment with the same black ink and added some "Glam Pink" Stickles glitter glue onto the dress to give it a bit of sparkle.

I took these photos at night so the glitter really shows up but in real life, it is more of an accent and it matches the pink of the Copic markers almost exactly. I set the panel aside to work on the card base.

I used a piece of Paper Trey Ink's Raspberry Patterned paper for the pink on the left side. I used a Lawn Fawn Scalloped Border die to die cut a piece of black pattered paper that I had as a scrap. I then layered these pieces with the stamped image onto the card. It needed something after I assembled it so I added a piece of black ribbon at the top.

My friend LOVED this card but if he didn't, I would have kept it. I really like how it turned out. I think I will be using this design to make a few more for my stash.

I am entering this into Simon Says Stamps "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge.

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!!

Such a beautiful girly girl birthday card! I LOVE the touch of the stickles/glitter on the dress! It makes it that much more interesting! It's so cool that you got to see Les Miserables on Broadway! That show has been on my list of things to see. Hopefully, I can cross it off this summer! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Nora, this is fantastic! So glammy-girly! Those pinks are just perfect paired with the black. LOVE this card! Sounds like a fun day in NYC. Only a Yankees game would have topped it off for me (baseball fan!). Have a great Saturday. Bev

What a gorgeous piece of glamour Nora and perfect for someone who wants a girly card. Love that you put black with the pink - it really enhances it. Sound like you have had a really busy time but weren't you lucky to get to see Les Mis on Broadway?
