Inspired by Black Diamonds

I decided to check out the VSN Mini going on this weekend on SCS. The theme is Cabaret, and since I love music and musicals of any kind, I had to play along.

The challenge I chose was called, "Inspired by Moulin Rouge." We had to select one of the gorgeous costumes worn by Nicole Kidman in the film as our inspiration. I chose her Black Diamonds costume because it gave me an excuse to go hog wild with the bling!

I had trouble capturing on camera how truly sparkly this card is. The paper is from DCVW's Glitter Stack and the rhinestone swirl is from Oriental Trading Co. The swirl just wasn't enough, so I had to add a few more rhinestones for good measure! I added the satin ribbon to mimic her elbow-length gloves.
Paper: PTI white, Basic Black, DCWV Glitter Stack
Accessories: rhinestone swirl (Oriental Trading Co.), rhinestones (The Paper Studio), ribbon (Michael's)
