Jazz It Up... CCS & ABC Challenge

Well I was lucky enough to be able to get this card to cover 2 challenges this week. At CCS this month Hetty set a sketch challenge with the theme All that Jazz. Well I have been stumped for about 3 weeks when I was rearranging my stock & came across the perfect decoupage sheet. Then over at ABC Challenge we have managed to get up to G...... it could only be one thing...... Glitter. My fave lol!!!! So here's the card........
I used a sheet of doublesided cardstock from my stock, & placed one face up & the other face down. The sticky ribbon is from Papermania Simply Elegant range.I ran it through my cuttlebug using a Spellbinders Piercerabilities. I used a scrap of doublesided cardstock to layer the decoupage onto. This decoupage is gorgeous but an absolute pain to cut round the feathers on her hat. Again this is available on my website. I added Stardust Sparklies to the bottom of the green dress. To make the little panel in the corner I cut 2 pieces of cardstock. The bottom piece was attached with tape, the top piece with foam pads. I coloured in silver peel offs with an OHP pen & attached Papermania Shimmer Dots. The tassle is something I picked up from the Brighton show. The little embellishments at the bottom are from a Papermania Embellishment set.For the inside of the card I used the same cardstock & ribbon from the front of the card. Using my Fiskars punch & emboss corner punch.
