MMSC52 of 'Corset' It is...

I am glad you came - you are right on time - it is a BIG day today and I hope you are ready for the celebrations - yes it the One Year ANNIVERSARY of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and we are excited!!  …It's all about our Players and Followers this month. If you have not entered our Blogaversay Jackpot Candy, be sure to click here for a chance to win a Candy Prize worth over $300. We will celebrate all month!  By the way, I learnt a new dance just for this occassion and I am going to show you the 'moves' a little but further down this post.....keep watching...

Before the party gets 'cranking' I thought I would show you what I am wearing today - AS IF!! LOL!  But it is nice to dream!  I have made my this card using one of Priscilla's gorgeous digi's - it is a pleasure to use it, especially with Priscilla bieng our Weekly Bonus Sponsor - thank you Priscilla, without you we would never have had such a great place to meet each week at over this past year - YOU ROCK girlie!

I copied the image twice and then embossed it through the Cuttlebug using the textiles folder, then cut out the corset on one copt and sponged around the edges with distressing ink.

I layered them on with foam dots, being careful to get themexact so the lacing still showed.

The tag is one I had in my stash, but that gorgeous shoe is a button from a RAK from my dear friend pam124 thank you Pam - you sure know how to make a girl happy!  This goes perfectly with my putfit for today's PAR-TAY!!

Then of course we all know the loveliest 'ahemmm...undergarments' all have to have lace, to I have used the gorgeous recycled lace and added a 'bling' brad to  make sure it stays in place (we don't want any embarrassing mishaps do we!?!?)  You may have noticed that instead of using DP I have used black lace - very 'Oh-la-la' if I may say so myself! 

Now seems as good a time as any to show you the HAPPY DANCE

I thought you had actually sewed the strings, and thought you had lost your mind, teehee. And then I started reading and realized the lacing was stamped. I hope you are feeling better.
