The Lovely Ballerina - The Paper Shelter - The Paper Shelter 3rd Birthday Blog Hop - TPS DT

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop which is in celebration of their reaching their 3rd Birthday on December 8th. It will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a  "Special Birthday" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from Debs Blog then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Team have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from 
The Paper Shelter  Website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

I decided to use The Lovely Ballerina for my card this week. She is so girlie and has to be in pink


She is cut with SB Grand Lables 4 with a faux nestie behind her, and mounted onto Grand Decorative Labels 1 and Grand Labels 1.  The butterfly spray is from Joanna Sheen, single butterfly is SB and small individual butterflies are a MS punch. The leaf swirls are a Marianne creatable. Flowers from WOC and sentiment is a LOTV stamp mounted on a SB Lacey Circle. Ribbon, corner and pearls from my stash.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and Prisma pencils with distress ink added behind her.


The inside does match the front.




From here you will need to hop on over to Patty Sue's blog Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!
Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far.

Ah, I'm a sucker for pink to begin with and then add the lacey ribbon, flowers and butterflies and I'm a goner, for sure -- drool, drool. This is an elegant card !!

Loster said...

I love, love, love how you colored this card - and I'm dying to find out how you placed the metallic sheen around the outside edges of the SB dies. I love the multiple SB layers, I'm going to give them a try sometime. Great card! (Did I say that I love, love, love how you colored the card?)
