.... and then another....


After my last post and telling you about my Brenda...ism.... I thought it would be appropriate to colour up this cute little ballerina dress. Hmmm...... don't think that will fit!!!!
This layout is for The Pink Elephant challenge. You must check out this blog. It is full of inspiration, creativity and wonderful techniques. So happy that my BFF Tracy found this blog and passed it on to me. One of the many things I love about this blog is that the challenges are selected and NOT by random pick. Tracy's cards have been in the Top 5 twice now. Congrats!!
The image was coloured with my prisma pencils then added dark purple and light purple gems to the dress for some glitz and glamour then layered on black which was cut with my nesties. The base is a soft mellow yellow and the black strip was edged with a decorative punch and layered with purple card stock. Finishing touch was 3 yellow gem brads and a purple bow.

Your Brenda-ism had me rolling!!! I have had "graceful" moments like that myself, and they are always funnier after the fact. Your card is a wonderful tribute to your ballerina moment:o) I love all the gorgeous purple and beautiful touches of gemstones!!! I hope you are enjoying your vaca:o)

Hugs!
