Dressed for the Ball

     The current challenge at AuroraWings has a theme of "Joyous Occasions" and what could be more joyous for a debutante than her first ball of the summer season?  It's Cinderella time.  :-D


I started with the sketch from The Outlawz.

     I colored with ProMarkers and added glitter to her wings.  I cut the image with a rectangle die from Spellbinders and framed her with deep violet CS which was cut with a stitched die from CUT-plorations.  The corner dp was  in my scrap basket and was embossed with my "Linen" folder before adding it to the purple CS background.  The doily was also a scrap, a leftover from cutting one in two for another project.

     I printed and hand cut the sentiment and then left the card design alone.  The bright and bold pattern in the corner dp and the delicate, lacy border of the doily enticed the eye enough and I still wanted that gorgeous image to be the main focus.

     Challenges:

Brown Sugar

     Happy Weekend (or what may be left of it) and Happy Crafting!  NanaConnie

OMG, Connie! This is adorable (and I immediately recognized the sketch, Fabulous job!) Love the details you've added to Iris Sprite and your colors are gorgeous. And what a sweet little story you've told about her. The premise couldn't be cuter and the sentiment is perfect. Also love that "Linen" embossing folder. What great texture. Would you mind letting me know who makes that? Thanks so much for joining our Joyous Occasions challenge at Aurora Wings with this beauty. xxD
