Dancing or Bingo?

I thought hard about the title for this post. Sometimes they just get boring. Anyway, it's week 6 of the challenges over at Through The Purple Haze. Still a long way to go for the big prize at the end of the year for entering all the challenges to that time, but I'm hanging in there.
This week is a bingo recipe.
Well. This is a challenge - three papers right in the centre. I struggle with one normally but did, in the end, opt for the centre line down.
The three papers are all from the DCWV Heirloom stack. A lovely collection of vintage/steampunk papers. That lace is actually printed on the paper - it looks so real, doesn't it. All matted onto pearlised gold card. 
I followed the sketch over at Sparkle Creations as my inspiration for the card. I wanted elegant for this gorgeous Rick St Dennis lady - Waltz.

 A length of dark brown velvet ribbon for opulance, some royal blue satin to match the hem of our dancing lady's dress and some narrow cream ribbon tied up in a big bow with a gorgeous flower in the centre.

Coloured with promarkers with perfect pearls painted onto the hem for that glamorous touch, some glossy accents for her jewels and gold glamour dust applied to the butterflies on her dress. 
Some pearls added (to tie in with the sketch and the bingo line. I did stamp a sentiment down the side, for good measure, using expresso ink.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at
Through The Purple Haze - Bingo - ribbon, three papers, pearls
