It's the Weekend!!

Oh yah!! Anybody else out there doing the weekend happy dance??!! I was so ready to stamp tonight after a long and busy week so I checked out the IC over on SCS and it was posted already!! Yay!! (I'm out for a girl's weekend so after tonight I won't be stamping 'till Sunday.) Stephanie (the IC goddess) is sending us to this website to browse the gorgeous Faviana Prom Dresses!! There's something for everyone so you HAFTA try this one!! Here's the gown I chose. (Because It looked so much like my new Que Sera Sera DP by KC& Company that I was dieing to use!) For the image, I decided on SU's retired (but never EVER forgotten!!) Petal Prints set. I used my Nestibilities to create the scalloped main image layers. I also used a bit of the coordinating Que Sera Sera adhesive border across the bottom -- but most of it got covered up by the Nestie layers. The DP had a butterfly printed on it and I didn't want to cover that up, so I ran an exacto knife around half of it so the scalloped layers could slip under it. I glittered up the salvaged butterfly with Dazzling Diamonds and finished off the card with some Kaisercraft brown pearls.
