I hope you are all having a good week and are looking forward to a great weekend. We are supposed to go camping this weekend :) and as luck would have it, the forecast is for rain and rain and more rain :( I think I'll bring a box of crafting supplies along :)
I'm back to invite you all to come play along with us over at the Playing in Paradise Sketch Challenge. Scrapbooker's Paradise always sponsors the challenge with a fab prize and you have a few weeks to link up your entries. You can even play along if you don't have a blog or gallery by e-mailing your entry to us. For more details, check out the Playing in Paradise Challenge.
I'm really loving these cute ballerinas and for my inspiration piece I made a card to match the candle I made earlier this week (here). These will be for my niece's birthday. She turns 4 in a few weeks and is taking little toddler ballet classes. This image reminds me of her, so I hope she likes it!
Image - Tutu Sweet set by Penny Black, illustrated by Mo Manning, coloured with pencils
Paper - white and kraft card, stamped with Hero Arts music background and Impression Obsession flourish background cling stamps using Color Box Frost White ink. Edges were inked with Distress ink in Frayed Burlap.
Flowers - I made the two sparkly pink roses using the Sizzix Mini Petals die by Susan Tierney-Cockburn using white card and spritzed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Cotton Candy Pink Starburst spray. All the other flowers are from Pretty Petals.
Other - Kaiser Craft white lace, Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish 2 (I added a hint of Frantage rose color fragments to the corner of this die cut, but it is hard to see as it is mostly covered by the flowers), Stampin' Up pearls, and Frantage Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel frames the image - love this stuff!
Here is the sketch we are playing with this month. As you can see, I've left a couple of elements off my card.
I hope you will pop by the Playing in Paradise Challenge to check out what the rest of the talented team made. They are sure to wow you! Then come and play with us :) I'd love to see what you make.
Thanks so much for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each one and love having the chance to visit you too.
