Lili of the Valley - A Sketch

Good afternoon peeps, hope you are all well. Do you ever have one of those days when you don´t have enough hours? I am already late for the St. Patrick´s celebrations round a the Peña but hope to get there within the hour unless something else crops up.

Anyhoo onto the new challenge at Lili of the Valley which is a SKETCH by our lovely Bev.

My friend asked me to make a card for her grandaughter because she has just passed her first ballet exam, bless her, I remember only too well running our girls around to their ballet, tap and modern lessons. I knew straight away which stamp to use because "Little Ballerina" fits the bill to perfection as does the circular sentiment also available from Lili of the Valley.

I coloured with my copics and used glamour dust to the skirt of her tu-tu, papers are BG bittersweet, lace, flowers and gems from my stash.

I adore this image as it´s so versatile, perfect for anniversaries, engagement, Easter etc. I have coloured with my copics and prismas adding touches of flowersoft and glamour dust. I would be lost without my nesties but decided to use up some old craft stash that has laid about for years. At one point in my crafting I couldn´t live without my peel offs, bet I wasn´t the only one lol, rub on´s were another thing I used a lot before I started stamping and I even pulled out an old punch which hasn´t seen the light of day for I don´t know how long. Papers are BG Urban Prairie, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon from stash.
