Penny Black and More - January Challenge

Good Morning and Happy Sunday!
Hope your year is off to a great start. We're having a fun new challenge for you at Penny Black and More, this month we'd like to see "something for the girls". I hope you'll come play along with us, we have some fun prizes to give away as usual.

I knew right away that this was the stamp I was going to use. These Penny Black "fashion girls" are my favorite girly stamps, sadly I only have two of these type of stamps.

The image has been colored using copic markers. I had another card in my mind, and started fussy cutting this image. Can you see all the details...needless to say, when I was almost done, I gave up and instead decided it was going to be quicker to just re-color the image in place of finishing the fussy cutting. You can see my first coloring here, this is also where I listed the markers I used. It's pretty much identical to this one. 
I decided on this simple sketch. The sentiment is part of the same stamp set. Designer paper is from Prima Marketing. I finished off the card by adding some sequins, twine and did some paper piercing along the side. 

I am entering my card here:
