Hilda Dances Like No One Is Watching!!!
Happy Friday everyone. I hope your week has been a fabulous one and that your weekend will be delightful.
This week at Friday Sketchers 67 we are hosted by the unbelievably talented Claudia who has given us a very interesting and challenging sketch for the week!
I hope that you will hop over to the Friday Sketchers blog and check out the wonderful DT Sample cards and will join with us this week in using Claudia's sketch. Be sure to link your blog post in your comment and also link back to Friday Sketchers in your post in order to be eligible for the week's prize. This week's fabulous prize is from Verve Stamps so come on over and join us!!
For my card I used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI for all matting, and Papermania Blueberry Hill from the UK for all DP. I also used Ballerina Hilda from Motivet. After stitching all bottom panels for both the outside and the inside, I stamped Hilda 3 times, cutting her out in her entirety once and just the tutu on the other. I used silicone glue for the dimension. Hilda was colored with copics and the tutu is Stickles. I used a small piece of Sheet Music paper from Crafty Secrets for one panel and Allegro CB embossing folder for the other. I used tulle, reminiscent of the tutu, for the left side panel. I then added a filagree heart tied with tiny silk ribbon, a rose and bow buttons, several mulberry/tulle roses, and finally my piece de resistance, for a touch of whimsy, the cutest little hippo button in the lower right corner which also has stickles on her tutu...lolol
For the inside I added some pink trim and several ballet themed buttons to the first panel. The highlight of the jotting panel is another dancing hippo!! To complete the inside I added some MS oblong pearls to each of the corners to soften them.
Thank you so much for dropping by today to see what's happening!!! I appreciate each of you so very much and hope you will come back often...I love to hear what you think of my little posts. Have a delightful and safe weekend and until next time...enjoy and DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING!!!!!!! Hugs!!
