"A Is For ANYTHING GOES" ABC Challenge!

I was so excited when I received an e-mail from "Jan" , from the ABC Challenge Blog ,  asking me to be on their DT. It took me 2 seconds to say yes! LOL! When I first started making cards I played in the ABC Challenge. Then sadly they closed the challenge, I was so excited to hear they were coming back and that excitement turned to pure joy thinking I was going to be on their DT. This is my first card for the team and I am so nervous about it. I actually did four other cards and found something I didn't like about each one. I used this lovely image from Krista Smith she has some wonderful images and I think I might want them all. LOL! I colored the image with Copics and added some glitter to her skirt and slip. I had originally planned to do a white on white card, but then as often happens with me, I took a fork in the road. I dry embossed each of my panels. The left side is a Cuttlebug folder and the right side is Sizzix. I cut my flowers with a Magnolia die and inked the edges and then curled the petals. I added a pink rhinestone brad to the center of each flower. I used my wonderful leaf punch and then glittered the leaves.  (I do love the sparkle)! A sheer pink ribbon and a heart charm finish off my ABC card. I hope each of you will hop over to the ABC Challenge Blog and join in the fun! The challenge is "ANYTHING GOES". So enter those cards and check out all the fabulous cards the other DT members have made. You won't be disappointed by the talent of my fellow DT members and you have a chance to win the following prizes:
Lily of the Valley Gift Certificate (a great way to win some of those fantastic new stamps!)
Our second sponsor and oh, my, there are some beautiful stamps here!
No, excuse not to play as anything goes....I have a special gift for one of my current followers who play along with our first challenge! I can't wait to see what you come up with and I hope everyone will welcome back ABC Challenges!
My Song:
So many nights I sit by my window
Waiting for someone to sing me his song
So many dreams I kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark but now
You've come along
You light up my life You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days and fill my nights with song
It can't be wrong When it feels so right
'Cause You
You light up my life
(And truly my fellow bloggers do light up my days! Thank you and blessings to each of you!)
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
