Sew Lovely to Play in Challenges!

I thought I'd try my luck at a couple new challenges. I made this card for the CASE Study Challenge featuring a card made by Silke Ledlow. You can see her gorgeous creation at the bottom of this post. 

I also made the card for a recently launched challenge blog called Lily Pad Cards. I've been following them since day one. This is the first challenge I've entered. The challenge is to create a card inspired by a book cover. This particular cover (shown below) is for the book "Around the World with Auntie Mame." I've never read it, but looks interesting!! Auntie Mame wears very fashion-forward clothes, so I thought a fashion theme was quite appropriate. 

I am sorry it's so shadowy. It has been raining for days here in Ohio. The sun finally came out briefly early this evening just before the sunset. This was the best I could get before the Lily Pad challenge ended. :-(

I got to use my Copics again to color the dress, except for the belt and trim. I used my silver leafing pen for that. Auntie Mame seems like she likes a lot of bling, so I had to add the sparkly gems, of course.
