Wow, how happy was I to discover that Peggy Elms suggested a site with some fabulous Erte' images for the Inspiration Challenge today! Way to go Peggy and thanks to Stef for featuring it!
You would think, being a humongo Erte' fan that I could have come up with a better card. But isn't that just the way it goes some times ... perhaps I was cowed by his sheer creative genius!
Anyhoo, it was totally fun to play in the challenge today!
As to the card ... used Proterra Eggplant card base atop gloss white stock. Sponged parts in white craft, used a gel pen for dots, embossed the delightful Drama Queen in white (thanks to Anne Ryan for this ever so glam stamp which was pretty perfect for this challenge!). Circle punched a moon in silver and doused everything in Glimmer Mist which was a splendid gift from ardodd ... (thanks Anne, I'm lovin' your presies!) I just love the sparkle which is probably not evident in the photograph.
After a grueling week, I'm calling it a day and apologize for my horrific attempt at a card this evening. I will be back tomorrow to comment on your creations for this challenge!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a wonderful weekend!
Postnote: forgot to link the inspiration ... oops!

Silly girl, how could you say all that about this oh so gorgeous creation? Of course, I'm also going to be using my very favorite image too for this fabulous challenge. Great work on this one. You'll need to teach how to use that glimmer mist in September!

My favourite Muse! Ah, how sad to see how hard we are on our poor little selves, we try and make beautiful work, and then we just can't accept it right! I tell you and I know, that this is gorgeous and divine, just like you sweet friend. I love that bluesy feel too of course. TFS hugsxo

What are you not happy with, M! I think you've captured the style perfectly. Simple graphic lines is it, and your CHF Diva is totally perfect. I even thought adding the bling to mine was going a bit OTT.
Love your blues, love your card.
