Here come the girls...

Hello lovely people,

Wow, can you believe that it is now August?!  Someone needs to tell that to the weather though - my garden is well watered so can we have the sun back now please?

You may have spotted that today is Thursday and you know what that means... a new challenge at Lili's Little Fairies and this week we have the theme of...
Here come the Girls
So, we want to see one of the many gorgeous LOTV stamps featuring girls, fairies or female bears.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbons with a £10 voucher so you could snap up some gorgeous girly ribbon treats if you win :-)

I love going back to old stamps I haven't used for a while and falling in love with them all over again, like this cute ballerina.

I based my card on this lovely sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge;

I am totally loving my new fancy rectangle dies and just about managed to squeeze the image onto this one!  I have added a little glamour dust to her tutu and hearts, and also around the sentiment circle.

I created the little memo pin myself; they are so easy to do, just wind some thin wire round a pen a couple of times then bend the wire at 90 degrees and voila!
I also like to match my pearls to my colour scheme so I buy lots of white pearls and colour them with Copics.

Card recipe;
DP: MME - Blush
Die cut rectangle: Spellbinders timeless rectangles
Seam binding / flowers / pearls: from Wild Orchid Crafts

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 & R30
Hair: E40 & Y11/21
Leotard/shoes: RV0000/000/00/11
Tutu: RV0000/000/00
Ground: T0/1/2

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Papertake Weekly (sketch #81)
2.  Wild Orchid Crafts (birthday party)
3.  Divas by Design (favourite colour combo - pink with more pink!)

For loads more inspiration and beautiful girly cards head over to Lili's Little Fairies and see what my teamies have created.

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
