Here's my entry for the Gingersnaps Chestnut theme challenge (GC45) 'Celebrate'

I used mauve glitter card for the background and an image from Joanna Sheens Dancing with Shadows which was printed on to acetate and glittered on the reverse. I matted this on to a background made from card which I covered with paper that had been made using starburst stains and glimmer mists, scrunched and then highlighted with gold EP. The ribbon and gems are from my stash. The beaded tassel is made using black size 11 seed beads and gold size 6 seed beads. To finish off I stamped the sentiment (HOTP) on to some tapestry card (again glimmer misted first) and edged with gold pentouch.

This card is also for the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew which is 'Celebrations'
Pile it on: One colour + neutral (not sure if black and gold count as neutral)
Crafty Cardmakers which is 'Feminine Celebrations' and
Corrosive Challenge #54 which is a sketch this week
thanks for looking
