Cocktail? and a Homecoming dance

The house is so quiet this morning!  I dropped off the high schooler, hit the gym and then took the dog for a long walk!  Packed up my card submissions that are being sent out for publication and almost ready to head to make a couple of returns. 

Its been a nice three day weekend although I feel like we spent the most of it getting ready for homecoming dance!  I can't believe she's in high school, much less heading out to these dances!  Anyhoo, here she is.  We had her hair done Saturday morning and I did  her makeup that afternoon.  She had a great time but I'm glad they don't come along often as it's a small forture! lol  And, of course, Sadie had to have a little "bling" bow too  :)


Now on to today's card!  It's a Krafty Kimmie's Stamp called Perfect Potion!  I thought it was adorable but didn't realize how much work it was to color!  I think it turned out fantastic though!  I love the deep colors.  Her dress is purple but I photographed it every which way I could think of and it still shows blue in the pic!  It's still cute as can be! 

I layered the cardstock and embossed the green and purple pieces with the chevron embossing folder by Stampin Up!  I cut her out and attached her to the die cut piece and distressed the edges.  I also added a little ink to the bow to distress it and knock off the bright white.
