Fashionable Christmas

 Ooh, la, la, isn't she a beauty?!  She's the beautiful Fashionista Squigglefly digi and she is just perfect for paper piecing.  Or at least I thought so when I was thinking about this card.  I pieced her dress and the purse (I made it this color, 'cause I have a purse that looks just like it--dark denim with black straps) and added black rhinestones for the earrings and a silver rhinestone for the diamond ring and a litter bit of glitter pen over gray pencil for the eyeshadow.
I sprayed the denim layer with glimmer mist and it is really sparkly in real life, but I wasn't able to capture it in the picture.

Challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox #32--summer or winter
Lollipop #95--Happy Holidays
Squigglefly #48--winter wonderland
Delightful Challenges--All about Christmas
Frosted Designs:12 Days of Christmas; Day 3--3 inks/mists/paints (I used glimmer mist, an ink pad and markers)
Sweet n Sassy Digis #83--Christmas

Supplies:
Stamps: Squigglefly "Fashionista" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment
Dies/embossing folders: Verve "Charming Ovals" dies; Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder

The title describes this card so well - it's definitely a fashionable card! Love this image, and her paper pieced dress and bag turned out so great, and I love the denim background too. Well done!
