Going to the ball

Isn't she beautiful?  I just love Saturated Canary images.  Just gorgeous.  I hope I did her justice.  I started to do this for an upcoming DT challenge but I just couldn't get it right for that so I did a "have it my stash card".  I thought this would go nice for a birthday or just to say hello.  Saturated Canary is having a challenge this week entitled "Dotty".  I picked out some paper to meet that one.  Also, I think her hair may count for that as well.  In their challenge this week for each entry received, Saturated Canary will donate $1 to Susan G Kolmen for the Cure in honor of a fellow crafter named Jen who is going through a battle with cancer.  

I colored her with Whisper Strokes, Stampin' Up and Copic markers.  I have barely started my Copic collection so I still need to use others.  I added some Stickles by Ranger and Glossy Accents to make her sparkle and shine.  The pearls in her hair are Kaiser Craft.  All the design papers are online papers.  They come from Papercraft Inspirations, Free Vintage Digitals and A and T Digital.  The other papers are from Core 'dinations and my stash.  The ribbon I used comes from Offray.  I have a big drawer full of ribbon but this particular one I have had for a while just waiting for that right card.  I'm not sure if this is the one I was waiting for but I figure it's better to use it up than it is to have it in a drawer looking pretty.

Finally, the roses are from a candy that I won from Julie.  I don't know the company though.  There were so many wonderful things in the box she sent.  I don't know who was more excited - me or my niece Cortlynn.  She opened the box with me.  She loves to craft too and has her own blog that she shares with her sister Cara.  You should stop by and give them some love.  They adore getting comments.  Their blog is called Sassy Sisters.  That name totally suits them.

I am entering into the following challenges:

Scrapalicious - Anything goes
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner #25 - Lots of layers
Bearly Mine #50 - Anything that glitters
Use it Tuesday #38 - Use that ribbon
Penny's Paper-Crafty #91 - Sparkle and shine
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything goes
Little Miss Muffet #42 - Pink, pink, pink
Natalie and Amy - Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Have a great day!
