Papertake Weekly - Anything goes

Hey everyone! I can't believe it's already Tuesday again, and it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly. Since it's the first Tuesday of the month, we are being sponsored by none other than Lili of the Valley, and our challenge is anything goes with an option of going monotone. And as you can tell, I chose not to do the option this week. Here is what I've come up with for you. (this is my April class card - so if you're in Reno, I'd love to see you in class!)

I used this irresistable #3059 Tilda in Ballet Shoes from the fabulous Princes and Princesses Collection which is available at Magnolia-licious! Does it get any cuter than her? I don't think so! LOL! I love everything about her! She's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers. She's then cut out with circle and petite scalloped circle Nestabilities.


The papers are Graphic 45 matted with Bazzill cardstock. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly border punch, and then I used a couple of dies:  The flourish is a Magnolia Doohickey die, and the butterfly  is Memory Box #70 Darla Butterfly and #71 Vivienne Butterfly. The bow was made usuing May Arts silk ribbon, and the rose in the butterfly is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added three ice green adhesive pearls and lots of machine stitching, and this one was finished. 


Please pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all my talented teamies creations for you today, and then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
