Art Nouveau ...

     OK ... so I had posting issues (lack of a device, lol) and I missed a couple of challenges that I used to work this card, it's ok though.  It happens - life is life and we must trudge on. The pictures could be better too.  Lighting was bad.
So, on with the card.
I started with black cs and ran that through the cuttlebug with a gothic scroll like folder (which you can just barely see in this pic).  I added the purple washi across the center for the sketch requirement.  The flags on either side are black with bright silver polka dots (which look white in this but they're quite glitzy)
I cut the entire girl at 3 inches with my cricut using the Art Nouveau cartridge.  I added a diamond gem to her head piece.
The sentiment was stamped with a bin find rubber stamp that is one of my favorites onto vellum (which looks silver) with black StazOn and then heat set with clear powder to give it a bit of shine and texture.  I added the two diamond studs on either side to mask the tiny glue dots used to hold down the vellum.

I used this sketch challenge that I totally missed the cut off for.

I would like to add this to the following challenges that are still open:

Four Crafty Chicks: Favorite Era
Tuesday Throwdown: Embossing (dry and dry)
Little Tangles : Anythiing Goes.
Chocolate, Coffee, Cards:  Just us Girls

Thank you bunches!

Fantastic image! I adore the way you highlighted it. The sentiment is awesome and so are the studs you used. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing creation with us at 4 Crafty Chicks Favorite Era challenge.
