Strut your stuff

Happy Glee day friends! :)

Have you ever bought some pattern paper that is totally outside your normal style but something about it just speaks to you? Not necessarily in a way that tells you how the heck you will ever use it, it simply whispers, "I'm pretty, so very pretty... take me home with you."
Well, that has been the case with these papers. I bought them a couple years ago without any idea of what kind of project they would ever work for, so they have sat and waited patiently until I came across this week's Cupcake Challenge. As soon as I saw the bright colors and paisley/floral decorations on those cupcakes I was finally inspired to cut into this crazy/cool paper.
Now the task was to find a stamp that could hold it's own amidst that busy pattern... hmmmmm... ahhhh, I had just the gal and she hadn't even been inked up yet so it was a win/win! ;)
I loves me some Moulin Rouge! so when Kraftin Kimmie released the Moonlight Whispers dancing girls range I had to make them mine and miss Babette, with her fabulous flouncy bustle had just the right attitude for that paper. I didn't add too much else to the card because I didn't want to compete with everything that was already going on and I think it works!

Alrighty, time for me to go get ready for work. See ya tomorrow when we'll start previewing the new Roll Call Sprout set at CA&Friends! Supply list:
