Birthday card for my special girl

I had so much fun with this special card.  Had an idea as to what I wanted to achieve and just sat down and finished almost in one go. (Had to wait for drying time)
I used a dress form (cant remember the brand) and the card size is 6" x 12" on embossed white cardstock.
Stained the dress form with Tim Holtz Stain and then sprayed with black/gold Shimmermist as well as a silver Shimmermist
