All Dressed Up

Hello again, my friends!

This is my third post in three days! 
Just scroll down and take a peek if you've missed any of them! :o)

Today begins a new challenge at All Dressed Up.
Our theme for this challenge is *CAS or Clean And Simple.*
Here is the card I made using an image from last months release called "Loves To Dance".
Isn't she gorgeous...oh, so elegant and stylish! 
The image comes with an optional sentiment but I kept mine clean and simple!
I coloured her up and simply added some pink Frantage around her. 
Then I matted the image with black and adhered it to the card base.
Finally, I added pearls, and a strip of Washi tape down the side!



Materials Used:
Papers: DCWV - Textured Cardstock;
Image: All Dressed Up - Loves To Dance,
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Frantage: Stampendous Shabby Pink;
Washi Tape and Pearls: My Stash.

* * * * *


This challenge will run until March 15th.

Hi, Nancy! This is a wonderful card - such a delicate image, and I can feel the "prima-donna-ish-ness" oozing from her posture and expression! LOL Great colors and a wonderful card design. This actually qualifies for the sparkle n sprinkle challenge because of your embossing powder, if you'd like to enter it!

Love the shading in your coloring! hugs, de {Creative Smiles}
