It's Showtime!

Since Ashley's Dance Recital will be here before I know it, I decided to make a card for her so I don't end up doing it at the last minute.  She will be wearing a purple leotard and skirt, so I colored this to match.  I used the Stage digi image from Hambo Stamps and combined it in Photoshop with a free digi image that I got last year from Two Scoops Rice Designs and came up with this: 
The image was colored with copics and then I added stickles to the girls dress, shoes and hat as well as the embossed dots on the background panel.  

I thought this image would work perfect for the sketch challenge over at Hambo Stamps so I followed that sketch.  In addition to that challenge, I am also entering the following challenges:

Paper Play - "Shiny Happy People" 
Stampin for the Weekend - Ribbons and Bows
The Corrosive Challenge - Texture
Totally Gorjuss - Texture
Clearly Delightful - Use dry embossing and some yellow (I have very little - the centers of the flowers, but it is there)
Paper Sundaes - "Make a Scene"
The Crazy Challenge - "Don't Call me Flat"
Crafty Angels - "My Favorite Things" - copics, ribbon, rhinestones, stickles, border punch, nesties
Kaboodle Doodles - "Digi Girl" - use a digital girl stamp

Ok, that was hard to pick and choose challenges, since I could have entered many more, however two of them I wanted to enter have a limit of 10 challenges so 10 it is.
