All Dressed Up - Birthday Blog Hop

Hi there, Dressies!

We've just passed our birthday and we have some very exciting news.
Wendy, the owner and designer of All Dressed Up, will now be selling her gorgeous images as both rubber and digital stamps with none other than

Please pull up a chair, grab a cuppa and a slice of cake, as you'll be here a while.
We're having a mahoosive blog hop with us Dressy Girls and some of the Sugar Nellie Design team too.

AND an extra challenge for all you  Dressy fans.
Oh, and better than that we have this gorgeous freebie,
 along with the numbers (just in case you want to change it),
 designed especially for the celebration.

...and what is a hop without prizes?
We'd like to thank everyone who donated a prize.  
Lot's of lovely goodies are up for grabs girls but you must follow our two simple rules :)

1. You must complete the hop and leave a comment for every one of us Dressy Girls and of course the Sugar Nellies too
2. You must create a card using the freebie and add it to Mr Linky on the main blog.  

Now I guess you're all desperate to see these new images. 
So, let's hop!!!

* * * * *

I have created a simple canvas using this gorgeous new image called "Full of Grace."

I simply spritzed the blank 8" X 10" canvas with a number of mists.
I added a little bit of texture stamping in black.
A piece of lace was adhered across the bottom of the canvas.
Then I added my flowers and some bling.
Finally, I adhered the coloured image and the fussy cut sentiment that comes with it!

Here it is:

Materials Used:
8" X 10" canvas;
Image: All Dressed Up - Full of Grace,
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Sprays: Glimmer Mist - Kraft, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Wheat Beer,
Perfect Pearls - interference red;
Ink: Ranger Archival Ink - Black;

Tattered Angels Screen Prints - Tattered Textures;
Paper: First Edition - Boho Chic;
Punch: Boho Blossoms;
Pearls: Prima - Say It In Pearls;
Lace: My Stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
