Basic Grey Guest Designer Week 2

I've had a lot of fun playing along as a guest designer at Basic Grey Challenge blog this month and this time the theme was wide open with anything goes. I find that having the creative freedom to do ANYTHING can often be a lot harder than having a set bounding box. So many ideas flying around, its harder to get started. Well, I ended up combining the BG challenge with LOVEFEST2013C - Bring on the Bling  for this Girls Night Out card.
Handmade card using Basic Grey Among the Ruins paper, Stampingbella Uptown Girls Victoria and Juliette's Night Out stamp, Stickles and sewing techniques
I stitched the background papers on my sewing machine. The chipboard swirls are embossed with black EP for a uniform look. The girls are colored with Copics and I wanted to color one of the dresses black until I realized I don't actually own a black Copic so instead my Bella wore a sequin dress improvised with Stickles. I'm pretty sure they had a great night out, but I'm off to get more Copics. Thanks for stopping by!
