Let them eat cake!

It doesn't seem to matter that there is no evidence this was ever spoken by Marie Antoinette - this phrase has been linked to her for many years and as they say "mud sticks!"  Anyway, my second post today (Friday is a busy day for me) is for the current challenge over at The Octopode Factory which today is Royalty.
I chose to use this Marie Ant. in a mirror digi and can you guess, I just got some Liquid Pearls???  I'm having fun with these, even though I'm a bit late to the party (as always!).  I stamped the background with some Parisian themed Tim Holtz stamps - my one and only set so I'm trying to use it as much as possible :)
I'm really enjoying playing with these Octopode Factory digis - I do like the oddness about them and I think they work really well with mixed media projects (something I'm dabbling with at the moment!)

I would also like to enter this for the following -

Thanks for stopping by again - let's hear it for the weekend!!

Dawn, what a riot! Love the image and what you did to your paper! And I have had the Liquid Pearls for months now, and only have used them once. (I'm a chicken!)

I love the colors you used on this and the gorgeous papers. Great job using the liquid pearls. I'm like Penny, had them for months and never tried so far. Love your image. This is a great card.
