Prom Princess - All Dressed Up Challenge

Thanks for stopping by.
It's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up and this one has a theme of 'Your Favourite All Dressed Up Image'.  I have to admit, this is a bit of a cheat because those of you who visit me all know Abi Ballerina is my favourite image.. BUT.. I just used her on our blog hop so I thought I should switch it up a bit.  I do love this leggy gal though and as soon as I saw her, I thought of Audrey Hepburn and 'little black dress' so here is Prom Princess, all decked out in her finest.  She was a newly released image for the month of June and I was anxious to use her.  I found the sentiment on the internet after I googled 'Audrey Hepburn quotes' and it seemed so fitting.  Classy, elegant, graceful and always the utmost in professionalism.
This challenge ends June 15th so you have plenty of time to use some of those All Dressed Up images or snag a freebie from the Challenge Blog.  Please be sure to pop on over to the Challenge site and see the fab creations the rest of the girls have created.  The only rule is to follow the theme and use an All Dressed Up image.  We also maintain a Pinterest Brag Board and a Facebook Fan Page so go have a peek while you have your morning coffee.
Supplies:
Image - Prom Princess
Sentiment - computer generated
Papers - Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics
Misc - I mixed a little Aged Wine Frantage with Shabby White and sprinkled it around.  The brads were covered with Versamark and then dunked into the same mix and heated.  Lastly, I added some Stardust Stickles to the bow in her hair, the belt and flower.
Copics:
Dress - C10, C8, C5, C3, C2, C0
Skin - E13, E11, E01, E00, E000
Challenges:
Allsorts - Summer Girls
Bearly Mine - Let's Go Digital
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes
Sparkle n' Sprinkle - Anything Goes with Embossing or Sparkle
