Tip Top Shape #3 ~Stars~

Now did the post title get your attention??
It's the name of the challenge at The Creative Paper Trade this week....
you should go and give these challenges "a go".... 
they are creative and fun and the "samples" the DT create are gorgeous!!
 
So, onto my entry.....I used a new die I purchased a week ago.....
can you imagine all the fun I will have with this baby...woowho...
it is called "Starry Wreath" from Memory box....
I stamped the word "dream" on crean satin ribbon...
she just looked like she was dreaming of becoming a "star"....
the background paper reminded me of skate tracks on the ice....
my skater was cut from my Cricut...I used perfect pearls on her skirt....
I meant to ink her edges, but had her mounted before I realized I had'nt done it...
I get so mad at myself when I forget things like that!!!...
 
 
I also added some crystal beads to the ends of my bow (left over from my beading days)...
they add so much sparkle.....then a bit of vintage lace and she is done....hope you like it!
 
 
they have a 3rd challenge going, but I won't be able to finish mine....
we are leaving today to go North to "winterize" our summer home....
and I have not yet packed one thing.....
we take 3 cats and a dog with us...and I have tons to do.....
but I will have no internet and no paper supplies...ugh...what will I do!!!!

Diane this is the sweetest dreamiest little creation! Love the skater and your pretty sparkly MB star wreath (it's on my wish list!). The silver cording and little shimmery beads add just a touch of elegance. Thanks so much for joining us at The Creative Paper Trade!

Such a pretty match to our challenge, Diane! And, yes...that little starry wreath IS awfully pretty...love the dimension you've created with it, along with the dangling beads and delicate skater! The soft colors you've chosen are perfect! So glad you shared it with us at the CPT!

Beautifully done and what a great take on the challenge. You've put a lot of thought and work into this one. I've always loved white cards but seldom do them.
