Here come the girls..

Hello lovely blogging friends,

Once again I am late with my blogging duties, but hopefully it is for the last time. I have finally got my computer back, although sadly I have lost much of my previous work from the irreparable hard drive. Fortunately most of my photos were backed up on an external drive so there's nothing too dramatic lost, but it's still a sad moment when you realise stuff is missing.

Anyway, there's another challenge happening at The Squirrel and The Fox, and I just know so many of you will love it.

HERE COME THE GIRLS

Our challenge is sponsored by Make It Crafty, and I absolutely adore the image I chose for my DT piece. Her name is Can Can Dancer Sally and here's what I created with her:

 
 
I tried to girly this one up as much as I could and used lace, netting, a swirl die and some lovely pastel peach papers from the Prima Lyric Collection 'Overture'.  I splurged and purchased a set of matching brads, for I loved the gorgeous details in each one.
 


This one didn't photograph as well as I could have liked but it says "remembering the good times".

I layered the paper onto some cream and kraft card stock and distressed the edges of the image with Tim Holtz Antique Lace distressing ink.



Sally was coloured with copics, bought especially to match the papers. I went with a monochrome look, using E000, E00, EI1, C03, C05, C07, E93 and E95. I just adore how she turned out. This card is now marked for Mum's birthday.

I hope you'll join us at The Squirrel and The Fox with your girly creation for your chance to win a $15 voucher from Make It Crafty.
