Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

Thursday, June 23, 2016

 

 I'm way past the time that I can dance the night away celebrating with my girlfriends!   Our "partying" now consists of a good meal, lots of wine and laughing til we cry about our "glory days"!!  Still, my card reminds me of those nights we'd get all dolled up and hit our favorite, local club...seriously good times (and, yes, we were behaved ourselves - mostly!)


 For my card I watercolored the corner and added speckles of clorox which gave the background a "night time" look.  Then, using some glitter gold embossing powder I found in my stash, embossed the STAMPlorations images from the Party Dresses set and watercolored.  I added a simple "celebrate" sentiment and gold sequins.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration!
