Putting on the Glitz

This card started out with the intention of being a simple silhouette image to meet a few challenges. Once I got started and found my glitter paper, I opted to amp it up a bit from 'simple'. Definitely need your shades if you look at this in the sunlight! LOL.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #93
Wahoo! I'm linking up just in the nick of time to be current! LOL

Color Inspiration
I'm on the OSCC DT and was inspired to create another black, white plus one creation. I might be rebelling a bit as I have pink as my color splash and consider silver to be in the same family as black and white. :o)
The Play Date Café Challenge #71 ~ Color Splash: Black, White Plus Splash of One Color
Hotspot March Challenge
What a GREAT idea for this months challenge at Hotspot. You could find your mojo in any of Halle Berry's Academy Award dresses. I used her most recent gown as inspiration.
Stamping Vacation Clear as Mud Challenge ~ Bubbles
The clear as mud challenges are always a bit tricky. You are to be inspired by the theme, but not actually use any paper or images with the item on it. I was inspired by the round shape of bubbles which are reflected in my DP and embellishments.
Wild Orchid Challenge #18 ~ Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique Challenge #1 ~ TSB (Texture, Sparkle, Button)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #92 ~ Mother’s Day
This is perfect for a super stylish mommah.

Have a day in one's honor is always a cause for celebration.

365 Cards Day 305 ~ Flashback Thursday: Day 111 Stunning Silhouette
365 Cards Day 345 ~ Feeling Like a Rock Star
365 Cards Day 362 ~ Fun With Buttons
Create an embeillie with a button on it. The white center of my flower is a felt button. I added the pink center for a splash of color.
365 Cards Day 4 ~ One of a Kind
One of a Kind should either be in the sentiment or clearly conveyed by the card. I think my glitzy lady shouts that she's a rockin' one of a kind.
