Totally Papercrafts DT - Black & Purple

Morning All!! Yippeeeee, it's Friday and the start to the weekend as well as a brand new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week's theme has been chosen my the gorgeous Tammy who wants to see "Black & Purple" on your creations. I must be honest I found that colour combo to be quite a challenge in itself until I remembered the beautiful papers from The Creative Cottage which are just perfect. I had to use my brand new LOTV image, think she's my favourite from the new launch. The sentiment is also LOTV's new range and they're all absolutely gorgeous, so difficult to choose just one lol!
Isn't she just the sweetest little ballerina you've ever seen?! I've coloured her in with Copics and used loads of stickles on her skirt. I then used Papermania glitter chalks around the image, sadly it doesn't show up too well in the pic but it's so nice and sparkly irl. The doily around the image is also one of my new purchases from the NEC and is a Marianne die. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash. I'll be entering this card into the following challenges :
LOTV challenge - Anything goes
Crafts & Me - Glitter
Creative Inspirations - Glitter, glamour, girlie
Sketch Saturday - Fab sketch
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend. Please do stop by the challenge blog and see all the gorgeous cards from our very talented design team. Lotsa luv xxxx
