All Dressed Up...

     This is the second card I've done with one of the new June digis released over at Beary Wishes.  I love this gorgeous dress and think it could be used for so many occasions -- wedding, prom, New Year's Eve, a special birthday, anniversary... the possibilities are endless.  :-D


I took my sketch and colors from Digi Sketch Challenge.


     The image is colored with what's turning into a favorite of mine, a combination of ProMarkers and chalks, this time with a bit of sparkle on the ruffles.  The frame is cut with dies from Spellbinders and the pearl swirls are from my stash.  I made the flower from punched mulberry paper (blue) and gathered 1/4" ribbon (white.)

Chalk n Stock
Corrosive Challenge

Paper Nest Dolls
Scrapper's Delight
Sisterhood of Crafters

     Whew, what a busy week this has been!  Still, I've managed to post every day and you just have to believe me when I say that means there have been some late nights and early mornings.  Today is no exception but I will be home early this afternoon and have nothing else on my plate until tomorrow evening.  Maybe I'll find time to visit all those blogs I've been missing and check out what all of you have been doing.  I know there's lots of inspiration out there and I don't want to miss any of it. :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
