Tutu Cute!

Hello, hello and welcome!  I have a card today (tonight) that I made just for fun so I could join the challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog.  This week the challenge is Ribbon and/or Bows.  No problem!
 I chose this most adorable image, Odette.  Isn't she the cutest thing?  I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and I added some tulle for her little tutu.  I gathered it by hand and hand sewed it to the paper.
 Here's my card.  I used DP from MME (my favorite) and the sketch from Sketch & Stash (I hope you can see the sketch, my cheesecloth is somewhat hiding the elements).  I embossed the pink panels with a Swiss dot folder and inked the edges of all layers.  I added lots of pearls including some really tiny ones on the corners of the image that my son gave me for Christmas.  The lace I used for the bow has been in my stash for a very long time.  I used beads from my daughter's stash to decorate the pins behind the feathers.
 Here you can see I used the same sketch for the writing panel.

 Here you can see the layers which is what the lovely people at Papertake would like to see this week.  That is, of course, very easy for me.  How often do my cards not have layers….?
And here you can see the tutu she is wearing!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Mo's - Ribbon and/or Bows
Papertake Weekly - Lovely Layers
Sketch & Stash - Sketch

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,

    Your tulle, embellishments and fabric details are the perfect finishing touches to this gorgeous Mo image and the papers match beautifully too.
