Masquerade Full of Daggers

Tonight the Lady Commander of Copics and I attended a formal masquerade at the Earl of Adhesives grand villa. This annual event was held to mark the beginning of our final thirty-one days in the sun cycle. The costumes were a brilliant sight to behold, but unfortunately with the added anonymity, the chance for danger was high. As such, I had designed my gown to conceal two large daggers I wore on my thighs.   

This card was created for the Creative Card Crew “Birthday with a Sentiment” challenge that is happening now. Make a project that fits this theme for a chance to win a prize from our sponsors, Marianne Design and Delicious Doodles!

I started this card by colouring in the Delicious Doodles “Venetian Beauty” image using Prismacolor Pencils, adding some gems as accents. I then stamped and heat embossed the “celebrate” sentiment, which is a Unity stamp. The bottom sentiment, from the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set, was stamped onto a shape cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.
Last I decided to earn a bonus +80 sparkle XP points and used my Wink of Stella pen on the mask from some extra bling. It was however extremely difficult to photograph this glittery goodness.

The inside I stamped with a Close to My Heart sentiment. The edges were stamped using the Crafty Secrets “Glamour Girls” set.

The envelope was stamped with a couple other images from the “Glamour Girls” set.

This card will hide in the following challenges:

As it turns out, there was no need for my daggers of superb stabbing, the masquerade going off without a hitch. If only all the events we attended could be this problem free.
