All Dressed Up - Challenge Time

I made this card a few weeks ago for this challenge and I need to say, I LOVE THIS IMAGE.  There is something just special about it.  It coloured up like a dream and I kept the card simple so the image was the focus.  

I got some new SU dies which I used on this card, unfortunately they are either blunt or too skinny or just not what I expected, I had to shim up the sandwich in my big shot to get a nice cut happening, not sure if its the die or SU dies in general.  Thankfully I got it to work but boy was i narky about it.
The dies are HUGE,  that is what drew me to them in the first place, well that and the awesome matching stamp set that comes with them.

So my card is using Little Treasure
