You're Tu-Tu Sweet PP428

February 10, 2019

I attended the Valentine dances with my GRAND daughters yesterday.  We had a blast.  Thought I would share this happy moment with all of you!

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! 

The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous color challenge for all of us!  We can't wait to see what you create! 

My card is created on a Smokey Slate card base.  The curtains were made using Basic Gray and the MFT die set Take The Stage.  I added black ink with a sponge dauber to add dimension to the curtains.  The little ballerina is stamped in Momento black ink.  I used the MFT Tu-Tu Sweet stamp set.  The matching die was used to cut her out.  I colored her with Copic Markers and added Wink of Stella for shine.  Clear, sparkling sequins were added to complete my card.

I ran a piece of the gray paper down the side of the card and stamped the image again.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The envelope panel is a scrap from my pile, but tied in the pink.
