Fabulous Ballgown Ellie

I just had to play along with The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge #21 this fortnight for the chance to be their guest designer, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I used the gorgeous Ballgown Ellie for this card and wanted to do her in some different colours to my usual pink. I found a pad of virtually unused papers in turquoise, teal and grey and went with those colours and really love this combo!

This card is also for Crafty Sentiments challenge to use things that begin with "G". I have girl, glamorous (I think she is anyway), Glitter pen and grey card.

And here she is...I added lots of sparkle to her hair as she all glammed up for a night out.
