Dance Like No One's Watching



Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :) I'm so sorry I've been gone so long again. I had another crazy busy week at work. Luckily though, this weekend isn't too busy so I hope to get caught up on a lot of my crafting. It felt so good to get back into the craft room last night! :)

I love all of the new Victoria Case Images available exclusively at Susana's Store, but I think this one may be my favorite. The one I used today is Belle and I think she's just adorable :) I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with my copics. I added Diamond Stickles to her tutu and ballet shoes. I also added Kaisercraft Pearls to her top. I then inked around the image with SU's Close to Cocoa ink.

Next, I created my card base (5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Regal Rose. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by my design paper from K & Co. On the small panel, I used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch along the bottom. I then layered my image onto my SU cardstock and onto the card base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Susanaments Set, which is a set of sentiments designed by Susana to coordinate perfectly with these brand new images from Victoria Case. I love the size and font of these sentiments and you get so many in the set. Finally, for some finishing touches, I added Primas and Pearls. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I will be back to my regular posting schedule on Monday. I plan to spend lots of time in the craft room this weekend getting caught up :) Hope you all have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend.

Lots of Hugs, Christine :)
