But today i am adding this card for a few challenges which i have been looking at over the weekend. I started with Papertake weekly as it is a sketch this week, and over at Cute Card Thursday it is "Mono Mania"so that was the basics taken care of. Allsorts challenge is "Petals and Pearls" which are my fav things to add to a card, but last of all Crafty Creations would like to see "Paper Piercing" .Also over on the DO CRAFT site the PB challenge was to use an image with clothing so that's why i choose this one.

Papers used are papermania basics, ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons , the new eyelash one, PB image is Ecarte,Splits & pirouette, coloured with promarkers colours putty,almond & orchid as the dresses are paper pierced.
