Cards for Men challenge 11- no design papers..

It's time for another challenge at Cards for Men and this time we would like to see your guy's cards made without any design papers. Arrg! I was officially freaked when I saw this! I love my digi DPs and, after my image, they are where I start designing from.
Once I got over my panic I looked through my stash and found some amazing holographic card that I would usually consider too 'lairy', but had the perfect disco feel! Then I came across the midnight blue pearl card and my design started to come together.
The DT were lucky enough to be given images from our sponsor, Kenny K, and I have used 'Lets Party', which I have coloured with my Promarkers. The glitterball has been coloured with my Sakura Stardust pen to make it shine. I found the perfect sentiment to go with this as a freebie from Tracey Brossart, available here.
I decided to make a double stepped card to frame the image and to add interest as there are no DP. The back panels have been embossed with the Cuttlebug Christmas Stars folder, which is one of my favourites, and the stars at the bottom have been cut with a Crealies die.

As I mentioned earlier we are sponsored by Kenny K for this challenge and they have been super-generous and are giving 3 prizes!
1st prize- 3 digis, 2nd prize- 2 digis and 3rd prize- 1 digi. Wow!!
So with all these chances to win, as well as our usual top 3, why not pop over to Cards for Men and join in?
(I know I said 'no design papers' freaked me out but the rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you!)

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
