Shall We Dance?

Good evening, my dearios! And a special welcome to my new followers! Have a virtual cookie (calorie-free!!) x

I hope everyone is settling down happily after the holidays, it always takes me ages to get back into the old routine! Especially the crafting routine!

I am reorganising my craft hovel and cataloguing my stamps (nothing dramatic, just images in files!) and I'm aghast at how many I haven't yet used! So my new Resolution is to use them all at least once. It helps that I won't be at Ally Pally :( because my son is coming to see us :)

This LotV LotV cutie is 'Shall We Dance.' I used Promarkers, and Diamond stickles on the lady's fringed dress.

The papers are Nitwits: the spotty one is 'Breath of Fresh Air' and the checked one is 'Eggstravaganza.' I used a Martha Stewart punch, and the spotted ribbon is from Hobbycraft. I layered green and pink Prima flowers and put a mesh-and-pearl flower from stash in the middles. There are more pearls in the corners.

I'm entering the following challenges:

Friday Sketch Challenge - I hope it's ok that I broadened the middle panel of the neat sketch!

Lili's Little Fairies wants some black magic!

Songbird Challenges have the theme 'String of Pearls' ie use pearls! I have the pearl embellies and also the pearl middles of the flowers.

Thanks for looking, all, and I'll see you when I've got this heap of ironing done!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Cinnamon, Tan, Henna; Carmine, Cerise, Baby Pink; Cool Grey 1 - 5
