Party Time Lucy

Hi Everyone,
Does anyone remember when little girls went to a party they wore Black patent leather shoes with white socks and there very best dress ? 
Well when I saw this image from CC Designs from All That Scraps called Party Time Lucy , this is what it reminded me of, I suppose it still happens a little but times have changed and kids wear all sorts of out fits now. Gee I am starting to sound like I am a hundred lol.
Ok I have used this adorable image and she is off to a Birthday party.
Anything goes at the ATS Challenge  this time around so jump in and have a go , there are always great prizes on offer.
It's a shame you can't see it in the photo , but I used a Sakura clear glaze pen on her shoes to give them the shine of Black patent leather, it looks great irl trust me!
Here is a close up of Lucy, at Copic Oz they have a challenge at the moment involving the brand new release colours for 2012, now they did ask to create something with the closest colours to the new release, 
and as I buy my copics a few at a time, I didn't have ones that were very close on the list, it made me realise just how far I have to go with my collection. The prize is the new 12 set , so what a way to start building those colour families !
Here is the inside made to match the front, I am really trying hard at the moment to make sure everything follows through, Oh and by the way the layout for my card came from the Brilliant Bev on her tutorials and sketches page of her blog All the things I love if you haven't already check out her amazing work.
