Cheerful stamp pad challenge 84 week 2

This is my design card for week 2 of the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 84: use 3 designer papers. Please click here to see this week's inspiration from the rest of the team - and here to enter the challenge. The winner this time will be invited to be a guest designer.

My 5 x 7 card is based on the sketch given for the current Nightshift stamping challenge, using three offcuts of Hunkydory patterned card which were just right for the sketch. I stamped the DeNami glamour dress with stazon black - I used stazon as the card is shiny ... and then realised I wouldn't be able to use any alcohol pens, so I lightly coloured the dress with a colouring pencil and added some tiny gems for the necklace. I found other bits and pieces in my stash that were just right for the sketch, although I did add another Hobbycraft flower.
