Cute Daisy May - Glitter Challenge




This is my first week on the design team for Cute Daisy May challenges, and I am loving these images. This particular one is a doodle, and it really does print out like a little hand drawn sketch. You just go to the site, choose your images, pay a very reasonable price and they are sent right to your mailbox to save in a folder on your computer. Love them.
I printed this little ballet dancer out three times. The first one was the base image which I coloured with copic markers, the second one I cut out just the arm and the skirt, which I glittered before adding to the base image with dimensional foam pads. The third image, I cut out just the skirt and glittered it all over before adding to the base image with more dimensional foam pads. So her skirt really does look like a frilly little ballet skirt. The ribbon has been hanging around here for ages, can't remember where I got that, and I used half a scalloped circle embossed with swiss dots on the base card. All in all, I really like this one.
So, what do you think of the new look blog? I have wanted to change it for ages, but was a bit afraid to try in case my blog went spinning off into a bloggy cyber black hole, then I would lose all my blog buddies and may never have found you again. In the event, even for a dummy like me, it was easy, I made the header myself. Now that I have found out how easy it is, you will be dizzy, I might be inclined to change it often, just for fun :)

Well, first of all this card is just delicious! That skirt is gorgeous with all of it's elements. I must go check out those images! Next, the blog looks FAB! You must fill me in on how you did the header. It really looks great. Lastly, I loved your fabric card so much that I headed over to that website and bought the last yard they had! (the little shopping ladies). I picked up a couple others too. I can't wait to get it! You are such an enabler, you little devil :)
