Getting Ready For The Show

Today's card is for round #12 of the Progressive Challenge on CDAC. I won't get more than one done for this round so after much indecision I finally decided to use this lovely image by A Day For Daisies. I've coloured the image digitally using my pen and tablet and photoshop. I love having so many colours at my disposal. I created the mat the ladies are sitting on by digitally paper piecing a piece of bp from the Traditional Christmas scrapbooking kit into one of the journalling tags and overlaid my coloured image on top. The flowers are from the Cream Dream SB kit. The other two bps are from my stash and date back at least 5 years so it's about time I did something about using them. A few gitterations peel offs add to the sparkle and provide the finishing touch. It isn't often I use yellow prominently on a card and I don't know if I've ever done a yellow monochromatic one, but I don't know why because I really like the femininity of this one.
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
