Lace and Pearls and Spring Colors!

Hi Stampers!

Sorry for the late post today, we were having internet issues - GRRR! It seems like our internet provider knows exactly when I have tons of stuff to get done online!

Today is Tuesday and this is an extra special Tuesday for me because this is my FIRST challenge inspiration project for Crafty Sentiments Designs since being chosen for the Design team! Their challenge this week should have some gorgeous, gorgeous entries because it is Lace and Pearls!

Here is my project...

I used the Annabelle Elegance stamp from Crafty Sentiments Designs and colored her with copics. The papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found collections and that neat ticket is a Tim Holtz one that I distressed and then sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I just found that awesome rose trim with the pearls interlaced at Hobby Lobby last week! It was such a great find :)

I also added dazzling diamonds to the dress to give some bling and sparkle, here is a close up of the bling:

And here is a close up of my main image:

Now to me... nothing says Spring has arrived like Prom and this image totally reminded me of a girl all dressed up to go to her Prom so I made my colors be soft pastels which reminds me of Spring...so I also used this project as inspiration for our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week - Spring Colors!

So I hope that you will play along with us at Crafty Sentiments Designs by adding Lace and Pearls to your project and if you use Spring Colors also - play along at Loves Rubberstamps too!

Have a great night!
Happy Stampin!
