Some Odd Girl Dancin' Mae

Hi Again! My mojo is back! *happy dance* I created two cards last night that I'm quietly happy with.... Here's the first one -
I got an envelope of goodies from Annmaree the other day, and in it was some patterned paper American Craft- Amy Tangerine Sketchbook. As soon as I saw them, this pattern jumped out at me, and got me all inspired :D I started off colouring Dancin' Mae with my Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted to try black hair, because I feel like I'm forever colouring light brown hair... I must admit, I struggled a bit with the idea of leaving part of her hair uncoloured.... But, I do like the outcome :) The patterned paper was layered on some black, then on to the card base, the main image panel also has a thin black border... The sentiment is one that comes with Dancin' Mae and is layered up on some Satin Horizontal Stripe Ribbon and a few black rhinestones finish this card off. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first up is the sketch challenge from Some Odd Girl, next up is The Corrosive Challenge - Sentiments and finally Make it Monday, anything goes
