Feeling Lucky

I thought this turned out to be a pretty fun card. I wasn't sure of it at first, but I kept going and I like the end result. The card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4" and made of black cardstock. I trimmed some shimmery white cardstock at 4 1/4"x6" and then embossed it with the Polka Dots embossing folder. I cut a strip of pink cardstock at 2 1/2"x6 1/4" and used an EK Success border punch on each side. I then added some black gems on every other scallop. I wrapped some ribbon around the strip and then adhered it to the card. I cut the corset from Tie the Knot at 3 1/2." I used some black pearls for the buttons on it and then added some diamon Stickles to the edges for some shimmer. I adhered it to the middle of the card with some pop-dots. I used Blackletter for the "feeling," cut at 1," and used my Gypsy to weld the letters together. "Lucky" is cut from Indie ar at 1." I used some black glitter on both parts of the sentiment. I left the inside blank because I still don't quite know what to put on the inside...I'm hoping I can come up with something good, but until then, it stays blank. :)
I made this card for the following challenges:
