5/22 Sweet Little Dancer Card

What do you do when you have a million things that you should be doing before a long MN weekend? Why, you STAMP - of course! lol!
Actually, I needed to come up with another dance card and I wanted to take supplies with me this weekend so that I could make a few at the lake.
.
I had no idea where to start so I turned to a couple of challenges to help me get rolling. First, I checked out the color challenge from the Color Throwdown Blog. Purples . . . dance . . . little girls . . . works for me! Then I needed a sketch. I checked a few of them out . . . but needed one that would work for a fairly large main image. I had pre-stamped images from a Penny Black stamp that a friend loaned to me way back when. I knew I would use those extra images some day and today was the day. Soon I came across the Weekend Sketch Challenge and the card was born.
.
I used some textured Eggplant paper that really makes this card look extra awesome. I decided that with the paper special that SU is offering right now that I should get the 12x12 assorted Textured paper in all of the SU color families. So far, I have the Bold Brights, The Neutrals, and the Rich Regals. Elegant Eggplant is in the Rich Regal pack.
.
I took some liberty with the sketch . . . again to work with the pre-stamped image. The sentiment is from a stamp by Great Impressions. The ribbon is from my "stash." Have a great weekend!
