Uptown Girls

I can't say I was ever mad on the  Stamping Bella stamps until "uptown girls", I have bought 4 of them from Tracy at dies to die for, always a great service and lovely how she adds extra goodies in the form of die cuts in your order. This stamp is called "Victoria and Juliette's night out" and comes mounted on cling and with the sentiment.  
I've used pro and flex markers to colour the image and had real fun paper peicing the dresses with my minds eye "fine and dandy paper". I've added ectra dimention to the dresses with perfect pearls in mint green and bronze stickles. A few star gems and a big organsa bow complete the glam look.

challenges entered:

Simon Says Stamp : paper piece it
fab and funky : favourite colour combination (love these colours and have them in our bedroom and hall.)
sweet sketch Wednesday : followed the sketch above
Papertake weekly : tie up your loose ends (use ribbon)

The snow has stopped here and is melting away, can't say I'm sorry.
Went to the folk/music club in Port Sunlight , Wirral, last night, great night and an old man at the ripe old age of 89 , it was his birthday that day, got up and sang 2 songs and was amazing , a real character with a real young at heart attitude, hats off to him.
happy crafting. janex

I love this card Jane, I know what you mean about Tracy at dies to die for - the service is brilliant and her die cut gifts often come in very useful.
We had a load more snow last night and we still haven't got rid of the first lot yet!

This is wonderful Jane. I love the glam image, the paper-piecing works so well. I think that is one of my favourite colour combinations too, it looks so stylish.

thank you, also, for taking part in the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge.

I agree with you about dies to die for, their service is first class.

What a great image and sentiment. Love the paper pieced dresses.
Sounds like Port Sunlight is a good place to live near if you want a good nights entertainment. The snow is melting a bit here too. I actually went into town this morning (walked in after parking my car outside my daughter's house) and most of the pavements are still very dodgy. Lots of frozen and slushy snow.
